About the Event

Students in grades K1 – 3 will explore environments, ecosystems, energy flow, & organism interaction by creating a scale model biodome, following the steps of the engineering design process.

This class focuses on energy flow and food chains, basic needs of plants and animals, and the importance of decomposers. Students consider why a solid understanding of one's environment and the interdependence of an ecosystem can inform the choices we make and the way we engineer our own communities.
