Urban kids dig into science and get friendly with worms

New York City’s Apple Seed program gets children who live in the city to experiment, engage with, and learn from nature. The program – which has reached over 4,000 kids in New York Public Schools – teaches children about gardening, photosynthesis, and wildlife through hands-on learning experiences and has shown demonstrable success in higher math and science test scores. This program is part of a larger, nationwide trend toward engaged learning and nature.
