Life Lab

Life Lab cultivates children's love of learning, healthy food, and nature through garden-based education.

The Monterey Bay Science Project (MBSP), located at UCSC in the Life Lab Science Program, is sponsored by UC Office of the President.  MBSP is  a collaborative program of Monterey Bay area regional schools and universities, bringing together K-12, college, and university faculty in a variety of institutes, conferences and yearlong programs. 

MBSP participants study and explore effective approaches to teaching science, all within a climate that supports reflection and critique.  Participation with MBSP is designed to foster the development, over time, of teachers’ capability for leadership within schools and within a larger educational arena.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
