Learn how to become a Green Innovator! (Limited Spots Available)

About this Event

Description: In this camp, students will learn about being sustainable, green product design, learn about biomimicry-that is, learning from plants and animals when designing products, consider how to connect schools/learning spaces to nature, and participate in a virtual circular design challenge with their peers. Our activities have been designed to creatively engage students and enable them to work independently with materials found at home. Register for this camp soon as we have limited spots available to keep the class size small (if you have multiple children in grades 3-5, you only need one ticket for all of your interested children!) Thank you.
