Gardening Club

At Jefferson Elementary we have created an innovative and hands-on approach to teaching our students about sustainable practices through our Gardening Club.  We engage our students weekly through inquiry based learning techniques, hands on activities to prepare them for real life situations, team building, and developing their communication skills.  A few activities that our Jaguars have participated in are redesigning and revamping our gardening space, best practices for composting, hydroponics, the 3 R’s, and nutritional sciences.

FIRST LEGO League introduces science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to children through fun, exciting hands-on learning. FIRST LEGO League participants gain real-world problem-solving experiences through a guided, global robotics program, helping today's students and teachers build a better future together. In FIRST LEGO League, students engage in hands-on STEM experiences, building confidence, growing their knowledge and developing habits of learning. FIRST LEGO League inspires youth to experiment and grow their critical thinking, coding and design skills through hands-on STEM learning and robotics.
Friendly competition is at the heart of Challenge, as teams of students ages 9-16 engage in research, problem-solving, coding and engineering - building and programming a LEGO robot that navigates the missions of a robot game. As part of Challenge, teams also participate in a research project to identify and solve a relevant real-world problem.
