Going Green on the Farm

Help me give my students several high-interest learning experiences--for example, the opportunity to understand there are alternative methods for growing food such as hydroponics. My goal is to create a diverse science lab center. Thank you.

My Students

My creative and hardworking students love collaborating as a team to design, explore, discover, and problem solve! Students were enthralled creating visual representations of animal cells when parents donated cupcakes and candies to represent each important part! Help me have the opportunity to continue to bring science to life with Project Lead the Way Launch!

I am in the process of implementing a STEAM activity center for our sixth-grade students with a focus on earth resources.

By providing small-group learning centers from distinctively different fields of science, my students will be able to explore their interests through hands-on activities. Please help me bring out the scientist in all our kids. Thank you.

My Project

I want my students to understand the demand for food and energy production is at a critical point and the benefits of going and growing green are extremely important. The Lab-Aids™ Investigating Plant Macronutrients Using Hydroponics kit will amaze students by helping them understand plants can actually grow in a solution of macronutrients. My students will grow a variety of seed to determine which are the best for hydroponics.

Students will be able to make the connection that plants can be grown indoors with artificial light by combining the hydroponic lab activities(paragraph 1) with lessons in light using the Optical Bench.

As our society moves from carbon-based fuels to electricity, I want my students to understand the potential for electric-powered equipment on the farm. The Solar Powered Car, the Kit Toy Motor S/12, and the Generator Hand Powered Genecon 12V will be used by students to learn how electricity flows through wires, how angles of the sun affect the amount of energy collected (solar-powered car), and compare the electricity produced by the sun and by the hand powered generator.

Please help me by supporting this generation of future high tech farmers by donating to this project. I know my students will not only have fun to learn science hands-on, but they will also begin to dream of future possibilities in real green farming. Thank you for your support.
