Xylem STEM Support Services
This week we welcomed our gardeners with a lively discussion about insects!
According to the Smithsonian Institute, there are between 100 and 400 million insects in an acre of land in parts of North America. We we challenged the students to tell us why we don't necessarily notice them EVERYWHERE when there are so many of them.
Their answer of course was...Camouflage! The students had the opportunity to create their own camouflaged insects and then the hunt began. They had a fantastic time and learned a lot too!
