Water World 2009 a Success!

Water World, a camp put on by both Centrum and PTMSC, ended Saturday. I was very sad to say good bye to all the 5th and 6th graders; it was such a joy to work with each and every one of them! Water World has been around since 1991 thanks to our very own Libby Palmer, who is the backbone of this camp. Over the years the camp has changed, teaching both art and science, but this year we feel we achieved our goal of melding the art and science curriculum nicely!

Students took classes in writing, movement, and visual art taught by artists through Centrum while Lucy and I taught classes on sound in the ocean, marine invertebrates, plastics in the marine environment and plankton. Although, at times, we were utterly exhausted from the long days, we were excited to spend a week of our AmeriCorps term working with such a great group of kids...I only wish the camp could have lasted longer! I can't wait for camps in the summer!
