Garden STEM activity for kids: Dirt Detectives!


Explore Soil&Water Garden through the lens of a microscope.

At this hands-on workshop children of all ages will use microscopes and magnifiers to explore the wonders of the hidden garden. In this fun and educational STEM event kids will transform into Dirt Detectives and take a close-up look at what’s growing in our garden!

Our Dirt Detectives will begin with a scavenger hunt then observe the treasures they find under the magnification of microscopes. Our Dirt Detectives will learn: how to use a microscope to make observations, how to identify different parts of a plant, and how plants use sunlight, carbon dioxide and water to make food (photosynthesis).

All ages are welcome, and no equipment or registration is required. Come dressed for dirt and don’t forget your hat and water bottle!
