K-12 PROGRAMS: BIOCHAR IN SCHOOLS
Biochar is a great learning tool
You have a chance to get your hands dirty.
It’s an art material.
It’s fun to make because you get to burn stuff.
It’s science, and you can do valuable experiments to see how plants grow when you add biochar and other amendments to their soil–and you can learn about the carbon cycle and biochar’s role in helping to slow global warming.
Teachers and students are starting to discover biochar as a wonderful new classroom project. Older kids are doing science fair projects. If your classroom is doing a biochar science project, or you know of a student who would like his or her work featured here, please contact us.
