It has been a short year for Conference2Classroom, having only been founded a couple months ago! Taking an idea into action in and of itself is no easy feat. And in the short time we have been working hard and believe it is important to celebrate victories.
We have facilitated activities with three participating experts. Jacqueline Hung and Sarah McFadden were attending ArcticNet in Ottawa, ON, this month and spoke with grade 10 students at Brookfield High School. This of course was only after our inaugural activity, with Susan Willis Chan, who attended the Entomological Society of Canada/America Joint Meeting in Vancouver, BC, in October. This first activity was so important to us. We had proof of concept. It demonstrated the value in our vision.
Behind the scenes we have been working to become a legitimate non-profit organization. This is important as it will enable us to seek out funding, providing support to our participating experts and keeping the activities we facilitate free to participating schools. In the interim and at any time in the future, you can also support us by donating. A big thank you to those who have so far.
We have more planned for the future. And we cannot wait to see what new opportunities 2019 will bring.
