The Fairchild Challenge 2014 - 2015
Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens has joined a growing consortium of partners offering a program launched in 2002 by The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Miami, Florida: The Fairchild Challenge. This free, multidisciplinary, standards-based, STE(A)M-focused environmental education program provides teachers with another tool to deliver core curriculum, and gives students an opportunity to shine. By appealing to students’ innate sense of creativity and curiosity about the world around them, the Challenge invites High School age learners to investigate environmental issues, devise imaginative and effective responses to these issues and to take action–at any level–to address them.
