Project PLANTS Science Saturdays

  • Saturday, September 9, 2017 – 9:00 am12:00 pm

Get your fill on the science craze! Project PLANTS explores agriculture and horticulture sciences all year round with Science Saturdaze—a Saturday morning science workshop to explore science concepts with hands-on projects and experiments! Join us to dive into topics such as water quality, photosynthesis, plant chemistry, animal science, local agriculture and more! Workshops are open to Project PLANTS members and middle school students.

Water Ways and Waste

Water is quickly becoming one of the world 's most precious, wasted and wanted resource. How does agriculture use our water resources and how can food production be a channel for more sustainable water-use practices? The Yurt is currently home to the JC Raulston Arboretum 's hydroponics system, and we need to devise a new plan for better flow! This Science Saturday is dedicated to a critical examination of water quality, water use, and reconstructing our hydroponics system.
