Summer Institute 2020: Teaching and Learning in the Garden

June 23-25, 2020 (9-4)

Whitman College Science Outreach in partnership with Walla Walla Valley Farm to School and the Sustainable Living Center will be offering a 2020 Summer Institute.  This will be a 3-day workshop focused on the many ways to teach and learn in the garden.  Two of our days will be spent digging into delightful aspects of science with Whitman professors.  Our other day will be filled with knowledge from an expert Santa Cruz based LifeLab garden educator.  We will balance our time between our inside lab spaces and the outside world, investigating the multitude of ways you can use your school gardens to connect with language arts, math  and Next Generation Science Standards. 
Lunch will be provided each day
STEM Clock hours available 
Open to all grade levels
