I represented the creative or the “A” in STEAM at the APGA 2013 Conference: Garden Evolution held in Phoenix. With my education colleagues from the Desert Botanical Garden. APGA is the American Public Garden Association. We presented to a packed house on how to use STEM in a garden education program and more specifically how to add the Arts right in the middle to create a more well rounded offing to students during tours. We avoid the typical power point and instead I created ‘slides’ to serve as a set design for us to speak in front. This allowed the focus to be on our words and the images from nature and industrial, recycled bits and pieces as inspiration only; not more words of information on the screen. The talk was very successful with a lot of interest nationally. Here are the slide images with the full power point downloadable at the bottom.
