1. Jody Guralnick explores the intersection of science and art, bringing to light the microscopic and often unnoticed structures of lichens, mushrooms, molds and more. These tiny organisms are comparable to the first words of the earth—building blocks for nature’s language. Her works seek to make visible the links between the human world and the realm of fungi and microbes, encouraging stewardship of the environment by highlighting the spaces that we share with microorganisms.

    Guralnick's exhibition, "Prima Lingua: First Words of the Earth," is on view at the Gardens through March 14, 2021.

  4. Get the whole family involved to learn a little bit about Mexico and challenge yourselves with an interactive STEAM project. Join Denver Botanic Gardens and Jacobs Engineering in a fun workshop.

    Create a rain harvesting system in this Día De Los Muertos-themed workshop. Learn how science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) work together.

    Get to know two engineers, Santiago Ruiz Lopez and Monica Morales, who are dressed in Día De Los Muertos-themed attire as they talk about how they became engineers. They demonstrate a hands-on activity while students follow along and create their own mini system to collect as much rain as possible to fight droughts. Mexico and parts of the United States share an arid and dry climate where rain harvesting can happen on the scale from the size of a tamale pot to as large as a whole field. Water engineers design systems to ensure that clean drinking water is supplied for generations and one way is through rain harvesting.

    Ages: K-12 grade students

    Household materials needed for the workshop are:
    - Raw rice/lentils/beans/legumes (something light and plenty in number) to use as rain
    - Paper/cardboard and foil to build the mini house and rain harvesting system
    - Scissors
    - Tape

    Materials are appropriate for children ages 5 and up. Please have these materials ready before watching the video.

  5. Get the whole family involved to learn a little bit about Mexico and challenge yourselves with an interactive STEAM project. Join Denver Botanic Gardens and Jacobs Engineering in this fun, virtual workshop.

    Create a mini earthquake-resilient structure in this Día De Los Muertos-themed workshop. Learn how science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) work together.

    Get to know two engineers, Stefania Hurtado and Monica Morales, who are dressed up as sugar skulls as they talk about how they became engineers. They demonstrate a hands-on activity where students will create their own structures to withstand a simulated earthquake. The City of Mexico endures large earthquakes, and engineering designs help keep buildings standing despite them.

    Household materials needed for the workshop are:
    Raw spaghetti/fettuccini pasta or toothpicks, to use as members for the mini structure.
    Marshmallows/gumdrops or fruit snacks, to use as connections for the mini structure.
    If you don’t have the above materials, you can use pencils/pens and tape as replacements.
    Tape, to tape the mini structure to the earthquake shake table.
    A hard-cover book, cardboard or clipboard for the base of the shake table.
    At least three marbles/beads or two markers/pencils of the same size for the rollers under the base of the shake table.

    Materials are appropriate for children ages 5 and up. Please have these materials ready before watching this video.
