Xylem STEM Support Services
The kids brought home a sheet to talk about all of these kinds of insects. Today we learned about the insects that help our garden and the insects that hurt our garden. We learned about Insects like the Praying Mantis, which can eat the harmful insects and occasionally eat our pollinators. The favorite insect of the day was tomato hornworms, the blight of any tomato grower.
We learned some vocabulary: Integrated Pest Management (IPM)
We offer support services to further Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics ( STEM) learning in Smyrna, Georgia schools. We sponsor after-school gardening programs and provide STEM educational training and networking opportunities for teachers.
