Where does food come from? How can we use sustainable methods to grow it? Our hungry planet must consider options for the future. Using the 5E model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, Evaluate) participants will investigate seeds and plants, then design a classroom garden. Teachers will engage in real-world activities and immediately bring to their classrooms hands-on, minds-on approaches to learning. Walk away with these great ideas plus a $50 kit filled with supplies to make it happen. Bring it on!

This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Workshop Series. The STEMAZing Project’s philosophy on teacher professional development is simple: It must be hands-on and engaging – putting the educators in the seat of the students to experience STEM lessons firsthand. It must provide the educators with the equipment and supplies they need to implement the lessons and activities in their classrooms the next day if they choose. It must be facilitated by master educators who have themselves been in the classroom.
Payments must be received five (5) business days prior to the start of the class. Payments can be in the form of a check, credit card, P-Card, or a school purchase order. Registrations within the five (5) day window must be paid immediately upon registering for the course.
