EARTH SCIENCES GARDEN & PACE Studio (Physics & Astronomy Collaborative-learning Environment)

Tuesday, 22 August 2017 at 4:00 pm

*Recipient of the 2016 LEA - Victoria Chapter Award for 'Category 6: Landscaping / Outdoor Learning Area'

The Earth Sciences Garden at Monash University creates a new type of teaching resource for Geology and Earth Sciences. The project creates a large scale outdoor system garden, that integrates principles of geology, geomorphology, landscape character and ecotype into an exciting new campus asset.

Monash University’s Earth Sciences Garden was created to showcase key features of the geology and geomorphology of Victoria and to establish an outdoor teaching laboratory for the study of Earth Sciences. The garden integrates rigorous geological science with landscape architecture and art making in a unique, hyper-real, semi-natural scene.

The garden has established a new precedent for the teaching of earth sciences, showing that scientific knowledge can be embedded in outdoor learning. With creativity and imagination it has successfully melded art and landscape architecture to provide a beautiful space for the wider community including students, staff and neighbouring residents.
