The Hidden Life of Plants for 9-12 Year-olds (S20)

for 9-12 year-olds: Offered in Partnership with the Dartmouth College Department of Biological Sciences. Campers will explore the workings of plants through art and experimentation, with a special focus on the hidden world of roots. Participants will take field trips to see tropical, sub-tropical, desert, and aquatic plants— including the Brout Orchid Collection—observing plants and their environments from a Macro perspective. A visit to the College’s Microscopy Lab will introduce students to plants on the Micro level, as they see incredibly close using contemporary technology. The insights gained through these trips will be brought back into the art studio, where participants will interpret and express their experiences through 2D and 3D projects, both big and small. The Hidden Life of Plants is funded in part by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
