Science educators Amanda Joy and Melissa Harding just got back from Baltimore, Maryland attending the North American Association of Environmental Educators (NAAEE) 2013 Annual Conference. NAAEE strives to promote excellence in environmental education throughout North America, as well as increasing the visibility and effectiveness of the profession. Amanda and Melissa co-presented at the conference on “Changing Behavior Through Creative Reuse: Using “Trash” Materials in Programming”; this presentation focused on how the department repurposes many “trash” materials in programming, from craft projects to program props, and included demonstrations of how to repurpose old T-shirts to make bags and how to turn magazines into butterflies.

The annual conference was full of exciting workshops and informative sessions, as well as a whole slew of innovative keynote speakers. and both Melissa and Amanda and excited to share what they have learned!
