For novice and experienced school gardeners, join master educators at Manzo Elementary for three days exploring the possibilities for integration and engagement when you build a school garden program at your school. Take away new and exciting ideas about how to best cultivate the STEM minds of students using your space. Beyond STEM, learn how other educators are utilizing their garden spaces as living laboratories to integrate STEM into other subject areas. This strand will also focus on the rules about using produce in the classroom and for food service, building healthy soils, understanding nutritional content labels, saving seeds for a successful school garden, and much more! Walk away with $200 in equipment and supplies to jump start your school garden or expand what you are already doing!
Audience: PreK-8th Grade Teachers

This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Institute. 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.
