Getting to Share What We Learned at the Summit

Showcasing our Environmental Knowledge and Projects from the Week

After a super busy week at Redesigning Our Future: Environmental Summit for High School students, groups spent Friday afternoon coming up with creative ideas to share what was learned and how we've all grown.

There was a flurry across campus as we all tried to develop creative ways to capture the spirits of our various focus groups. Everyone was running here and there picking up poster boards, markers, tape, and various other odds and ends.

The view from above at the Center for the Environment at Catawba College was probably the safest spot with so much going on and only forty-five minutes to get things together and over to the Peeler-Crystal Lounge.


You Need WHAT to Make WHAT?
Every group had a different overall personality and work style. Some groups had traditional table discussions while others scattered around building or putting together things. Some groups were rather quiet while others were bouncing off the walls.

Will We Get Our Poster Done on Time? We Hope So.

Dr. Rhonda Truitt (who coordinated the "What We Learned" festival with Mrs. Linda Kesler) Worked Hard to Get All the Technical Gear Ready to Roll

And, then we all gathered to share our special week as one large group. Because, as we learned, redesigning our earth is very much about sharing and collaboration.
