Garden Engineers

This February, Shepardson is celebrating Engineering month.  One of the great projects the kids are working on involves a problem we need solved for our school garden.   Our state of Colorado often has snows and certainly cool temps late into the month of April and May preventing us from having our soil warm enough to appreciate a variety of crops before the students leave for Summer holiday.  This week during Engineer month, we will introduce the problem and set the parameters.  The students working collaboratively in small groups, will begin to work on the Design Process to solve the problem.  Here is just some of moments captured in photos of the process.  More pictures to come throughout the week.  Be sure to stop by the Media Center to see the structures that kids have come up with to solve the problem.
