Students in the Temecula Valley Unified School District are making teaching and learning science fun at the inaugural launch of Summer Science Camp held this year at the Temecula Valley High School (TVHS) campus in Riverside CA.  Weekly camp participants divide time between experiments in the newly-constructed campus greenhouse, data collection, analysis, and also manage to get in outdoor games and science-related crafts they will take home at the camp’s conclusion.  This project’s major sponsor is the California Teachers Association Institute For Teaching, that awarded a 20 thousand dollar grant last year that was used in the construction of both the greenhouse and aquaponics system.
