In Growing Trees, you plant your own trees, watch them grow and learn the science of how trees work.
Trees are a crucial part of the world’s ecosystem, and understanding the basics of ecology is increasingly important to create a more sustainable planet Earth (and future planets humans might live on).
In this class, you will learn the basics of ecology as you plant your own trees together with your teammates and teacher. It’s pretty amazing to see a Sequoia tree start from a seed and grow to almost 300 feet. Furthermore, we’ll dive into the biology and chemistry of plant life.
We provide free loaner VR headsets if you don’t have one.
