The Seedling Tour is Back! The Tech department just got done building our very own seedling cart that comes complete with a few hundred flower seedlings, an onboard water supply, sprinklers, seed heaters, grow lights, and everything else the seedlings will need to travel from classroom to classroom while our students care for them. The seedlings will live on the cart until the greenhouse (and the weather) are ready. Several of the flowers were already transplanted into bigger pots to keep growing bigger. Just as exciting, our Food Sciences classes should be planting our vegetables sometime this week! We are excited to offer a wide array of veggies and flowers this year from our school greenhouse.
Fifth graders were at the controls today on their field trip to the Buehler Challenger and Science Space Center!
