Students from South Miami Middle School participate in the Fairchild Challenge Performances.

More than 800 students, parents and teachers attended the Fairchild Challenge Performances for middle schools on Oct. 17 and 18 at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. It was the kickoff event for Fairchild Challenge schools and students in Miami.

On two nights the students presented their research on their “plant superheroes” (i.e. plants that can feed, cloth, heal or harm). Gumbo Limbo, Aloe, Passion fruit were some of the plants chosen.

Their properties were turned into a skit or mini musical performed by the creative students and their teachers or administrators. The winners of the performances will be announced in May 2013 during the annual awards ceremonies and end of the school year.
