It's a day of firsts for us at Snowball! While Jon, Kylin, and I were in the 'Nature As A Context Of Science' class, Kathryn, Jayaram, Savannah, Madlin, and Grace were in the 'Innovating for a Healthy Future' class. In nature As A Context, the leaders of the module went over specific things that the program they run does for the environment. It is a non-profit organization yet they do get lots of donations for their hard work. They make sure every child gets the chance to experience the outdoors, provide a mentor for the child to help them understand the environment. They help the ecosystem if it needs support and schools as well. I think it's a good idea that they are doing this to young students. The kids are the future. We need to help and protect the future as they need it.
After our module classes, we went back to the meeting room where we met that morning and discussed what we liked and thought, "wow, we could really use that, that's a good idea!" We got together in groups of four with people we didn't know, and basically just shared what we thought was interesting. I was paired up with a man from the Philippines, a lady from Illinois, and North Carolina. It was nice to see people's different points of views.
On another note, we went to see a baseball game which was really fun. It was a great way to connect with people from the other parts of the country. I loved it. They even won! I'm glad we have such a good group this year and I hope we all stay connected even when we leave. It would be a great way to share what new updates we have in our schools or just to be friends. I love you guys!
