Today, I am documenting part of a presentation that I collaborated with Sandy Voegeli when we attended the First National Natural History Conference in the Bahamas in March 2013.
What you see in the following images are the first 10 slides from our PowerPoint presentation. I place them here on my blog, Coffee With Hallelujah, to hold them in time so that others may read how a visual artist and a master diver (Sandy Voegeli) thought about teaching environmental stewardship to children.
Here is part 1 (slides 1-10):
|SEA CAMPER ON THE ISLAND OF SAN SALVADOR. This image was taken by BREEF during the 2012 Sea Camp at San Salvador, Bahamas. Getting kids out of the classroom and into their backyard makes a difference in how they feel about their environment and what they learn.|
|CLASSES AT THE GERACE RESEARCH CENTRE. Children of San Salvador, Bahamas, use the classroom facilities at the field station of the Gerace Research Centre during July, when most researchers find it too hot to do research. Their Sea Camp experience is comprised of outdoor "field" experiences and supported by classroom lessons and activities. (photo by Sandy Voegeli)|
|CURIOSITY IN THE FIELD. Empower children to look, find, and ask questions when they are in their natural environments. Curiosity connects us all to one another and our environments. (photo by Sandy Voegeli)|
