Winter Home School 2014- Zam’s Quest Series


Zam’s Quest sessions are for students ages 9-12. Zam’s Quest is a program designed to have students look at conservation issues through role play. Students will take on the role of a conservation player and the problem through their character’s eyes. They will then experience mock town hall meetings, to try and come up with a solution that would work for their character and others. Note: A minimum of six students is required for this program. If fewer than six students register, the program will be cancelled. Pdog-clip
