The new Experimental Garden will provide faculty and students from biology, ecology, physics, engineering, and more the opportunity to collaborate and carry out experiments in the landscape. Already, an interdisciplinary team of faculty is figuring out how to capture and reuse every drop of water that falls on the new Science Center to irrigate the Experimental Garden and greenhouses, and to keep all water from entering the storm sewer. This kind of creative experimentat ion will teach students that much can be learned outdoors and that collaborative research can solve a complex, real-world problem.
