In Spring 2017, we were thrilled to design a suite of STEAM and Maker programs for the Denver Botanic Gardens. Collaborating with DBG's brilliant educators, we explored plant science through the lens of art and game-based approaches. From LED flower sculptures to companion planting games, we forged new ways to investigate plants, pollinators and pests. We also developed a series of Take Back to Class Activities to extend the experience of school and adult visitors. Our collaboration with staff and pilot students in Denver Public Schools was so fruitful and we learned a ton about the magical world of plants. Super huge thanks to DBG Discovery Days staff for this amazing opportunity to design new engagement experiences!
