One of the great things about this class is how it incorporates all areas of science and artistic expression. This past fall, I had the students work in teams to develop a media project that addressed a simple question:
How do we increase the consumption of fruits and vegetables in the U.S.?
The students were able to pick a group – children, teenagers (tweens), and adults. I asked for unique projects and I received them!
Here are the projects that I got permission to post:
- The Dustbowlers – Sad Veggies – Adopt a Farmer
