OUTREACH DAY WILL BE HELD APRIL 30, 2011. Save the date!!!
Every semester, the fifth grade classes taught by St. Mary's River Project - Education are invited to St. Mary's College of Maryland for a day of hand's on learning. Students get to explore the wonders of the College's state-of-the-art wet labs and see the multitude of aquatic and land plants in the College's greenhouse. Students even get to go down to either St. John's Pond or the St. Mary's River and watch demonstrations on how specimens are collected. Sometimes lucky volunteers get to assist the demonstrators, depending on a few variables. Throughout the morning, the students are engaged by their instructors in ways that are impossible in the classroom. They are taught important information in ways that engages the students and allows them to have lots of fun learning.
