    Thank you Olena for passing this article on. What an eloquent summation of the importance of programs such as the ones in Forest Park. Far too often education is limited to the constrains of the classroom but as shown through this article and the summer programs there is so much more to gain from the outdoors and real-life experience.

    Experiential Education is so very important and informal education experiences really help gel those lessons we learn in the formal classroom. I had the honor and pleasure of taking Dr. Wilson’s Experiential Education class and I learned so much about teaching and learning, especially about science.
    I try to incorporate those lessons in my environmental education outreach experiences with people in real life and online.

    Great article!!

    The new Math Science Central being built on the UMSL campus in the College of Education will have Experiential Education Equipment and an outdoor classroom!

    WOW! So well written Olena. I think it is a great advertising document for the wonderful programs offered for children, educators, and interns in Forest Park. I intend to send it to some of my friends and colleagues. I do miss my new friends in the Voyager program. Since I
    m not the younger generation, I don’t use all the new ways to communicate as readily as most of you. Thanks for sending your article to me.
