Girls in STEM - Landscape Design and Architecture
This Girls in STEM program, we invite moms to participate with their daughters. It's time to dig into the science and design of gardens and landscapes. Participants will sketch and make plans for their personal outdoor space, play botanical games, learn the anatomy of flora, and plant a starter garden. Mothers and daughters will leave with a green thumb, an understanding of landscape architecture careers, and a plan for their garden or outdoor space. The program will be supported by our STEM Mentors who can give you expert feedback on all your landscape designs.
