Highlighting Sustainability Work in the Tahoma School District
Wednesday, July 24, 2013
While presenting on the Tahoma School District the day before Tracy Benson, Program Manager for Systems Thinking in Schools - Waters Foundation, advised me to really pay attention today morning to
Nancy Conrad and the winning team's story. She thought that it would be a great
fit for our Tahoma team. I had already heard about it directly from Nancy Conrad
when she presented to my class on innovation. But today morning she presented to
the entire Camp and the winning team let us in on some hints. It was inspiring
to hear about the story of her husband and why the competition was created.
Clearly the most enthusiasm for the project came from the Tahoma team, who asked
the most questions. The project is very comprehensive as they require both a
scientific and business justification. But Tahoma has prepared us for a
challenge like this, and I want to take this one on!
