CAJE Partnering and Local Events and Programming



CAJE and The Fairchild Challenge
Partnering Event

The Fairchild Challenge ( is an annual, standards-based, environmental education outreach program of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. It offers a menu of separate but parallel interdisciplinary Challenge options for elementary, middle and high schools attracting students of diverse interests, abilities, talents and backgrounds. Through the Challenge, students research and critically evaluate environmental topics, become more actively engaged citizens, and come to appreciate more fully the beauty and value of nature. By blending content areas to create activities, projects, and "authentic experiences" that use the environment as an integrating context for learning, the Challenge promotes science literacy, civic engagement, creative expression, and lifelong learning in students and, by extension, in their respective circles of influence.

The Institute learning experiences are divided into three pillars: Administrative Leadership, Instructional Leadership, and Family Partnerships.
