How It Grows


Tinkering with nature

All living things are connected, including us. And so, what we do affects all the life around us. Waste and pollution challenge us to live better and to take better care of our surroundings. During this week, we will take a look at how humans change their environment by examining the different ways our soil, water and air are affected. 

What will we be making?

We will be building our own ecosystems and adapting larger projects based on the systems the students design themselves. Students can experiment on the rooftop garden to make an urban garden, sustainable architecture, water filtration systems and more!


Everything Is Energy

Experimenting with renewable energy

What is energy and why is it so important? As humans, we get energy from heat, food, and water - but there are so many more types of energy! From solar, wind, electromagnetic, chemical, electric, water - we will investigate all the different forms of energy and experiment with them in our lab and out on the rooftop garden.

What will we be making?

We will be tinkering with ways to capture renewable energy sources such as making hand-crank powered appliances, building solar-powered mechanisms, gadgets fueled by wind and more!
