Small Scale Test Results After creating the Smart Box, there were a few things missing. It lacked a long playtime and did not incorporate all of the science curriculum.

The testing model includes: non-flowering plants, magnetic red dirt, rocks & gardening tools. Testing for 2 weeks in a Kindergarten classroom.


Full Scale Testing


“There was a lot of garden-type language coming out of the garden lab, and we don’t even start plants for a while yet!” -Katie Geiger, Kindergarten Teacher


Full Scale Testing Results By incorporating The Garden Lab into playtime, students were able to learn about science sooner and faster than teaching during instructional time


The Garden Lab was placed in the ULL Hilliard Museum for the duration of 2 weeks. After the exhibition, The Garden Lab was returned to the testing school to continue teaching children
