Science STEM After school Program

Students have been introduced to the field of Botany, the study of plants. In this After school Program the students are investigating ways in which plants grow and seeds germinate. They have been designing their own greenhouses and self- watering systems. They have also learned how worms are beneficial for the soil, which in turn helps produce healthy plants.
