The focus of GoSTEM 2024 will be on Light Garden Design for Sustainable Agriculture. Navigating a path towards sustainable agriculture will broaden our access towards healthy well-being. Students will design, engineer, and build an indoor light garden for growing their own food. There will be an emphasis on sustainability through integration of locally sourced materials and design choices. Students will learn about the importance of light (spectrum, color and absorption), photosynthesis, and plant biology. An end of week Exhibition will showcase the students individually designed light gardens, as well as their field journals containing data and visuals on the physics of light, their light garden design process, plant biology/growth/maintenance, and curated food ideas. Director: Susan Silk. Instructors: Lisa Hix, Sarah McGregor, and Susan Romano. July 22 – 26
