In this inquiry-based activity, students will design and build a model of a greenhouse using mirrors and/or lenses that can be used to grow food all year. They will use their knowledge of optics to make their greenhouse more efficient (i.e., optimal temperature for plant growth).
Students choose a topic of interest that relates science they are studying to innovative or practical applications, recently published research, or potential future applications. They then prepare a... read more
