Join middle school educators sharing experiences of growing experimental
gardens, and teaching weather.
Creating & Maintaining an Experimental Hydroponic Online Garden
Create a long-term experiment, where students must act daily with
nature to help collect, analyze and publish data online. Students sustain and
maintain and experimental garden where variables such as light, water and plant
nutrients can be manipulated to optimize growing conditions.
Who needs to know about weather?
Weather Lessons Use it

newspapers and the Internet. Relate them to local weather. The WeatherCycler
Lesson puts weather systems into motion so that you can see why the forecast is
what it is. Make your own weather forecasts with it. My NASA
How an Open World Game Supports Students Computational Thinking in
What is computational thinking (CT) and why should students
practice CT? Learn about what CT is, why to integrate CT skills into science
class, and how the Pack, an open-world digital game, can provide diverse entry
points for students to explore problem-solving and algorithms.
