Learning Outside The Box

Co-host Greta Anderson begins with the Environmental Impact Project Showcase of Ames High teacher Mike Todd's environmental science class. These students* have spent the whole semester developing real-world outdoor projects on school grounds (e.g., a milkweed production plot, outdoor classroom, and permaculture garden), and informational art projects (via the Lexicon of Sustainability) that will be displayed in pop-up shows around the community. Then, Gale Seiler explores the local world of home schooling with Shelly Larson, the ACSD's Home School Assistance Program coordinator, Isaiah Riker, a home-schooled 17-year old, and in-studio guests Craig Hastings and Sarvinder Naberhaus, who both home-schooled their children and have been involved in assisting home-school parents and documenting their stories.

*Student voices included Macey Myers, Aspen McNace, Travis Jergens, Sarah Noble, Hailey Debbutt, and Brandon Johnson (pictured with his team and prize-winning Lexicon poster, the tall fellow on the right)
