Plant labeling with IC students


On May 22, 2018, AUBotanic assisted in installing QR coded labels around IC's campus. Lead by Mrs. Sawsan Kibbi of IC's middle school, AUBotanic's coordinator Ranim Abi Ali, and docents in training, students learned all kinds of facts about the plants being labelled and initiated in an educational back-and-forth with Mrs. Kibbi and Ms. Abi Ali after they accessed the webpages of each plant they come across. 

The activity was a success, and a total of 14 plants were labelled during one hour of the educational walk.

The activity ended as the childrens' recess came to a close and they all returned to their classes. Mrs. Kibbi and the IC family have expressed their gratitude for the labels provided by AUBotanic and the professional incite given during the plant walk. AUBotanic looks forward to future cooperation with the school and further learning opportunities for children on the fascinating world of plants.
