Kihei Charter Middle School Grows Some Good STEAM Projects

kihei charterKihei Charter Middle School recently expanded their edible classroom with new garden beds and a refurbished nursery and compost area. As part of the school’s experienced based learning approach to Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) curriculum, 6-8 grade students create scientific experiments, engineering projects and nutrition classes — all based in the garden.  Produce is harvested and served during recipe demonstrations and plans include a farmer’s market stand to model self-sustaining business skills.
