STEM- SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATH

A new pilot project offered by the Capistrano Unified School District will feature virtual field trips to conduct virtual research expeditions.  Technology will link students, teachers, state parks, scientists, and a variety of federal agencies.

Students will participate in virtual field trips to remote locations around the country, mentor younger students, and complete their experience with a visit to the location studied.

 

Shorecliffs Garden is already a featured virtual research site.  See the video on our website.

September 28th Garden Work Day News

     Thank you so much to everyone who came to our first garden workday. We had such a FUN work day over thirty 6th, 7th and 8th graders showed up with some very hardworking parent volunteers.  We cleaned out all the boxes and they are ready for the Fall Planting of our winter garden.  We finished harvesting the tomatoes, trimmed back trees and our wild grape vines, fed the worms, planted the terrace and just did a lot of hard shovel work that seemed to get done with a smile.  We also got to test our new sinks that the San Clemente garden club bought for us. The students hooked them up and got them working in no time.  With lots of good snacks and fresh  water the morning just flew by.  Our next  Garden Work Day is November 2nd.

What 's Happening In The Classroom: Garden News

     With the Fall season in full swing the students have been busy out in the  garden acting like scientists; observing, collecting data and making inferences about what we need to work on in the garden.  The West View Learning Garden provides a living laboratory with meaningful experience for students who learn best by applying their knowledge to real life.  We are planning our Winter vegetables with careful consideration of what we will Be using in our classroom. By looking at the huge diversity of species we will select the best seeds that will genetically provide a bounty of spinach for use on our chromatography / photosynthesis labs.  We will also select varities of peas to grow for our Mendel's  garden. ; We can directly experience how the father of genetics founded his principles of genetics. Our in class planting day according to the Farmer's Almanac is planned for October 10th.  See you inthe pea patch.
