The Fairchild Challenge combines hands-on research, creativity and a wide variety of engaging projects. The annual, standards-based program offers a menu of separate but parallel interdisciplinary Challenge options for public and private middle and high schools, attracting students of diverse interests, abilities, talents and backgrounds. In its eight years of existence, the program has become one of the world’s most comprehensive and influential youth environmental education programs.
The Fairchild Challenge
The Challenge is the premier outreach program of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, a truly unique place dedicated to exploring, explaining and conserving the world of tropical plants. Here people can walk garden paths surrounded by the wonders and beauty of nature, talk to experts in horticulture, conservation and science, view impressive art, see butterflies and birds at every turn and take classes on everything from photography to grafting. More information is available at www.fairchildgarden.org. The Fairchild Challenge, provided free to participating schools, is funded through the generous donations of the Fairchild Palms and numerous corporate and individual sponsors and donors.
