As an addition to their STEM-based education, students enrolled in Theresa Stevens’ and Kristen Rang’s third-grade class at Blue Point Elementary School have been working on their flourishing Tower Garden, a gift received from the school’s Parent Teacher Association.  

While spending time interacting and learning how to utilize the tall structure, students have been actively growing basil, kale, bok choy and more, all of which the students and staff are able to sample and incorporate into delicious salads.

Additionally, as a supplement to their mathematics curriculum, the students carefully record and measure the growth of their plants, keeping close track of the progress during the growing stages. 

According to Ms. Stevens, the ultimate goal of the Tower Garden is for the students to maintain optimal health and learn to make healthy food choices.
