For teacher Keara Welsh, the best way to experience science is through hands-on discovery, but it can often be challenging.
“In my space indoors, I don’t have any sinks. I have carpets,” said Welsh, a STEAM instructor at Fort Cherry School District in McDonald, Pa.
She said trying to keep classrooms clean can be difficult, which is why she loves working in the new Fort Cherry Discovery Zone, an outdoor classroom featuring two gardens and a solar-powered weather station.
“So, this is a great area for me to explore the messy part of science,” Welsh said.
