STEAM Garden Update
Last Spring the creation of the STEAM Garden and the grand opening with sculptor John Gowdy was a huge success...to see pictures from the event, look at the STEAM Garden page on this website. Every student at Mount Hebron got to participate and experience the STEAM Garden and Mr. Gowdy during our two day kick off. My art students got even more time in the garden to build and create before school let out. At the start of school this year, I gave a workshop to interested teachers on using the garden in their lessons. Last week, one of our math teachers used it to teach geometric forms and measuring. She said the kids loved it. I'm happy because I know I will use the garden in my classes but I really want the whole school to get involved. I have a science teacher and a social studies teacher working on lessons to take place the garden this fall....stay tuned for more STEAM Garden news and some other new projects I have in the works!
