How do insects help us detect pollution? Can animal adaptations help us design better products? How do plants protect themselves from hungry herbivores? Led by St. Luke’s Science Department Chair Janet Jochem, we will unearth the answer to these questions and develop our own as we learn how to ask good questions and develop creative experiments. Using an inquiry-based approach, campers will actively engage in problem-solving skills while connecting with their environment. This week-long enrichment experience will include a field trip to the Audubon Center in Greenwich. Course designed for rising 5th-8th grade students.
