"The technology was a big part of it, which is part of project-based learning, using those 21st-century skills," Alicea said. "That was one of our driving questions. How can we use technology to document the whole process? By using technology, they were able to show their progress and show their knowledge."

Alicea said the students used math to measure water and chart plant growth.

"Every day they were doing something," she said. "If there was a problem, they would come in and Google it, so they did a lot of problem-solving and used good teamwork.

"It was an amazing experience for me and for them. It was a learning experience for us all. And it was so nice to see the kids so excited about it."
