STEM for All Ages
STEM is an essential part of all GrowingGreat activities, but is perhaps best integrated into our program at St. Anthony of Padua School in Gardena. Here, GrowingGreat offers regular classroom visits and professional development for K-8 teachers and students. STEM Inside and Out utilizes St. Anthony’s STEM Lab and experiential outdoor garden learning space. This prepares seventh and eighth graders to become leaders in garden education, ready to implement similar programs at their high schools. At St. Pius X St. Matthias Academy, for example, high school students now lead
their own GrowingGreat STEM garden program. If STEM is the future, GrowingGreat is at the helm of innovative learning for the next generation.
