Engineering in the Garden Workshop

Starts:  Sep 15, 2022 09:30:00 AM (PT)
Ends:  Sep 16, 2022 04:00:00 PM (PT)
This workshop is hosted by Life Lab at Life Lab’s Garden Classroom on the UC Santa Cruz Campus.

Come be inspired to facilitate engineering experiences for students in the garden! Participants will engage in a 3rd-5th grade unit designed for NGSS in which students design and build trellises for peas in the school garden. We will make observations, build prototypes and then full-size trellises to grow peas. By unpacking this unit we will learn how to facilitate engineering experiences that address real problems or needs in school gardens. Participants will leave with resources and a framework for designing your own engineering in the garden unit and the inspiration to get started!
