Before you begin to investigate designs of greenhouses, you will need to determine why a greenhouse is needed (conduct a needs assessment). You will be assigned as a member of one of three teams:
Science Department Survey Team School Greenhouse Survey Team Greenhouse Professionals Survey Team
Each team needs to select a leader. All students will need to be a leader for one of the components of this project. Within each team, you will need to address several questions:
What information does my group need to collect? Who do we need to talk to for that information? What questions do we need to ask to get that information? How will we ask the questions? How will we collect and organize the information? How will we present the information to the other teams?
1. Determine why a greenhouse is necessary to meet curriculum needs. 2. Determine what features are necessary in the greenhouse to meet curriculum needs.
At the conclusion of your team's work, you will present to the class a summary of the information that you have gathered which supports the two tasks above. This presentation should also include your goals, your sources of information, and your methods of gathering information.
The information from all three groups will be compiled to present to the Construction Technology II & III class in the next step of our greenhouse project. This summary will also be part of the final presentation for to the Facilities Committee of the Pemi-Baker Regional School Board.
Are there other resources which should be available? If so, let us know and we will be glad to add them to the list.
