Lightning and Learning: Bringing Nature to the Classroom & Vice Versa

This workshop will focus on the practical side of connecting the classroom with nature. Using practical, hands-on learning, we will discuss how using nature to engage the senses can be at the crux of successful learning and a medium for intellectual growth across disciplines.

We will cover 3 activities for all ages that act as a catalyst to larger environmental lessons and serve to benefit your student's cognitive ability in the classroom through sensory-rich, hands-on learning. Highlighting team-building and imagination and serve to deepen a wonder and appreciation for nature.
