Captain Planet Foundation and Delta Air Lines announce a partnership to bring Project Learning Garden® to Atlanta, New York, and Seattle elementary schools!
Captain Planet Foundation’s (CPF) Project Learning Garden Program is replete with opportunities to support inquiry-based, immersive learning experiences in STEAM education for students of all levels and ages. In conjunction with applied principles of project-based learning, gardens provide teachers and students with outdoor laboratories full of natural phenomena to be observed, explored, questioned, and investigated. Gardens provide meaningful anchors where standard learning objectives merge with real-world experiences, making many of the concepts we teach relevant and relatable to students’ lives.
This partnership will bring Delta’s mission to be a strong community partner to life – as all schools selected under this program will have a Delta Employees volunteering to help install the garden, harvest the gardens, and your school may be selected for a special media day and tasting event!
Delta PLG grand prize winners will receive:
- Five raised garden beds or garden expansion (for schools with an existing garden).
- Access to CPF’s online garden-based lessons, spanning content areas and grade levels.
- Materials and supplies to support project-based lessons and garden-based activities.
- Fully-equipped Mobile Cooking Cart to prepare garden-fresh recipes.
- Online professional development and training for teachers.
- Strategy for summer garden maintenance or participation in Project Giving Gardens
- Delta Employee volunteer day for garden installation
Package valued at $3,000
