Last year's group chose to demonstrate their learning by creating YouTube videos that will teach others. In small groups, the students researched a particular raptor and chose several facts to highlight in riddle form. Then, using IPads, they recorded their facts and added background music. You can go to our TRC YouTube Channel and access all six of the videos here.
The Raptor Center is proud to give these outstanding young people an opportunity to learn about their shared environment with raptors, and we appreciate their efforts to find new ways to educate their peers. We want to thank our own volunteers for their guidance in running this very special program.
