MINEOLA, TX (KLTV) - Students at Mineola Independent School District conducted their first plant- based science experiment for the district's newly constructed greenhouse.
The greenhouse was built by the district's maintenance staff and funded through the Mineola ISD Education Foundation Teacher Grant Program.
The greenhouse, along with supplies covered by the grant, will be used to teach middle and primary school students about plants while conducting hands-on experiments.
Students will also participate in peer teaching.
The goal of the foundation is to fund teacher grants for innovative projects that enhance student learning. The greenhouse grant was awarded for almost $5,000.
