It's so hard..... to say goodbye to ..... our 2014 Sci Girls I Campers but today ended our two weeks of engaging, exciting, and innovative learning. We started the morning with "Bringing Bones to Life" presented by Southeast Archeological Center National Park Service experts Dr. Alex and Dr. Kate, with the assistance of Ms. Satin, Ms. Julia, and Ms. Megan. They created a mock dig for the campers to diagram a site, uncover "relics" from the past, and document evidence and information. What a great way to end our rocking Sci Girls Experience!
On behalf of Sci Girls I, we want to say thank you to each of our guest speakers, scientists, community members, and volunteers. We appreciate you for taking the time and effort to create engaging experiences for our campers. We also thank you for your participation and the sharing of your ideas and expertise. To our Sci Girls, we hope that the camp has been all that you expected it to be and that you have taken the opportunity to make new friends, to see new places, and to have discussions and exchange of new experiences with scientists right here in our community.
An early thank you goes to Dr. Keisha John, Dr. Huan Chen, Lucy Toman, and Catherine Kent, who will be our guest panelists tonight for our 2014 Reception. A very special thank you to Roxanne Hughes, Kim Kelling-Engstrom, and Mr. Carlos Villa for making sure we had everything we needed and much, much, more to ensure the success of the Sci Girls 2014 program. Until next year, this is Ms. Toyka, Ms. Susan, and Ms. Nancy signing off.....
