Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

Taken from the Santa Cruz Sentinel Article “County students dig in at ‘Strawberry Blast””:

Nearly 100 students from across the county traveled to the UC Santa Cruz Farm and Garden Friday to learn about the social benefits and epicurean delights of fresh, organic and locally grown food.
Santa Cruz City school kids make smoothies with strawberries they just picked from field at UCSC’s Farm project.
And, of course, to enjoy a delicious strawberry smoothie.
The Strawberry Blast, organized by “Food What?,” part of the nonprofit Life Lab Science Program aimed at youth, and the Santa Cruz City Schools Wellness Committee, allowed the students to harvest their own berries, make smoothies and learn about the process that brings food from farm to table.

Food Factories 🍅🥗😋In this lesson, students find leaves with holes in them and then construct explanations for what might havecaused those holes. They listen to a story book and add further possible explanations for the holes. Thenthey explore the garden to prepare to engage in argument from evidence about which explanation for these holes seems the most plausible. Finally, they relate this concept to plants that humans eat.#NGSGintheGarden #NGSS #gardenbasededucation

Today we set our seedlings out to the sun! After planting a seed, students have been caring for their pet plants for four weeks now! Recording their growth and how they change over time. We fed them compost and watered them in their new home in the garden!#NGSS #seed #gardenbasededucation #NGSGintheGarden

Thank you for such a wonderful field trip experience! Your leaders did such a great job at keeping our kids engaged.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
