Brittan Acres BUGS Program

BA BUGS Program
Superintendent Jennifer Frentress stopped by the Brittan Acres school garden🪴to see what Mr. Liner’s class has been up to. Part of the school’s STEAM program, Better Understanding of Garden Science (BUGS) helps students further their understanding of the interdependence between all of the earth’s living things as they grow into 2nd & 3rd grade BUGS students. They design and conduct experiments to test the effects of water, light, compost and fertilizer on crop production and study local flora and fauna, life cycles, and more! 💚 #scsdproud
