Outdoor Classroom – As part of a cross curricular project, students from several different classes are designing and constructing an outdoor classroom at the Atlantic County Institute of Technology. The carpentry, CAD, environmental science, art, architectural design and television classes all collaborated on this project. The environmental science students wrote a grant and were awarded $10,000 from Lowes to build the outdoor classroom and native plant arboretum. The NJ Pinelands and Atlantic County Soil Conservation worked with students in the design and site analysis. The students are also tagging plants that can be scanned with an iPhone to bring up the plant type/botanical name and use.
