Weinberg Elementary - (2018-2019) Students in 3rd grade at Weinberg are creating SIP gardens (Subterranean Irrigated Planters). They are recycling plastic water bottles to hold and release water under the soil. They added tomatoes, basil, and other herbs they've been growing inside their classroom under lights for the last 2 months. This project was made possible by a grant from Chandler Education Foundation Cash for Classrooms campaign. It's exciting to learn where our food comes from, what plants need and what they give, how they fit into our environment, and how we can be good stewards of our Earth. They will continue studying plants using microscopes and monitoring them in our school's greenhouse.
