Virtual Nature Exploration Wednesday

This Week’s Theme: Natural Disasters

Program DescriptionAn open-ended theme will invite youth to actively experience the process of expanding our world through wormholing into shared curiosities. During introductions, participants will be encouraged to share 1 question and 1 fact in relation to the theme. Participants will draw connections between shared interests, source knowledge communally, and narrow down research topics, before searching the web together through a “shared screen.” The facilitator will source engaging, educational media on the topics, which will be watched together as a group, discussed, and/or have the chance to participate in a theme-related activity. (The structure is flexible and malleable by group interest.)

As education access is a priority for H.A.F., this is a free, donation-based program. If you are able to contribute at this time, the suggested donation is $5. At this time, please direct your donations to the Don’t Shoot PDX, or another organization in support of the Black Lives Matter movement.
