STEAM: How Does Your Garden Grow?

Our Friday STEAM program all about seeds and plants

Our Friday, May 30, STEAM program will introduce the science of botany! Learning about seeds and plants is a great way to get ready for summer. It also sparks ideas for healthy eating. In this program children will learn about the parts of a seed, germination, and plant structure. They will also plant their own seeds and take home a chart in order to record its growth.
