Lab Activity: Summer Camp - TRED High School
Paideia Campus hosted three weeks of summer camp in May and June 2023. Summer Camp is a 6-day immersive program at the Paideia Campus.
The Summer Camp involved students from "Tred," a four-year ecological and digital transition program that combines traditional high school with a hands-on approach to STEM subjects.
Students were divided into teams named "Green," "Regenerative," "Mediterranean," and "Circular," and each team had the opportunity to actively participate in activities related to regenerative agriculture, conservation of bio-cultural diversity, traditional ecological knowledge, and sustainable local food systems. Students also participated in a 24-hour hackathon to find a solution to a challenge specific to each team.
