National Environmental Education Week!
Hey everybody! You may already know that this week (April 13th-22nd) is National Environmental Education Week, culminating in the Earth Day celebration! The American Camp Association, SOAR and others are offering a load of events, webinars and information to the public, and we’re very excited to share it with you!
This year, Samsung partners with EE Week offering an excellent educational webinar in which you can “Hangout” via Google with NASA engineers on Earth Day (April 22nd) to discuss STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers for girls! How cool is that? The “Hangout” starts at 1pm Eastern time and can be found here. There’s also going to be another webinar on Sunday the 23rd for teenagers to speak with a Samsung Engineer starting at 7pm. That one can be found here.
In addition to those great webinars, we at SOAR just had our 2014 Open House last Saturday! If you missed our Open House, you’ll have another chance to get a preview of this upcoming summer at our Spring Family Weekend, which falls on Mother’s day this year, May 9th-11th. Come join us! We’re going to have a great time! We have very limited registration left, so if you plan on coming, please register as soon as possible! Here at SOAR, we think the Environment is an important part of mental well-being. And we offer our kids a variety of courses in California, North Carolina, Florida, Costa Rica, Belize and especially our brand new Wyoming Environmental Adventure course! For more information on our courses check out our Summer Course Page!
National Environmental Education Week is a program of the National Environmental Education Foundation (or NEEF, for short), which is one of the most influential organizations advocating for environmental education, connecting information and resources to the people who can and want to do things with them. Established by the National Environmental Education Act in 1990, NEEF sponsors Earth Day, National Environmental Education Week and much much more. Please show your support!
