Based on their OWN CURIOSITIES AND INTEREST, students are researching their own ecosystems and are now starting to build food webs to try and connect their 50+ species to see if their ecosystems are biodiverse.
And then 15 minutes later, their food webs grew in complexity and it started to get interesting.
These students are learning all about ecosystems by exploring school ground ecosystems and by building their own micro ecosystems. Students also have the choice of examining an ecosystem of their own choosing and innovating a solution to a real-world environmental problem or using Biomimicry to design a solution to a problem
While spending science class comparing a cell to his airplane system, this student asked if it was possible to reduce the noise inside airplanes based on his understanding of the structure of cellulose he learned from a cell. He designed an experiment to test his idea.
