The Ruth Patrick Science Education Center at the University of South Carolina (UofSC) Aiken in partnership with the Hitchcock Woods Foundation, Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary, and the North Augusta Brick Pond Park is offering a new comprehensive STEAM program for children in the community. “Through the Eyes of a Child” provides an opportunity for students to learn about and document the nature they see around them. The goal is to inspire children to get outside to discover their natural world and take digital photos of their discoveries using a cell phone, tablet, or camera.
Registered participants will receive an eco-friendly backpack including a nature discovery guide, water bottle, pencil and additional guides for three discovery locations. The “Through the Eyes of a Child” nature discovery guide will help direct participants adventures, photos, and activities while helping identify organisms and objects that can easily be photographed in a yard, neighborhood, park, etc. The guide will lead students into Hitchcock Woods, Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary, and the North August Brick Pond Park to photograph plants and animals, learn about patterns in nature, and more.
Participants will also have opportunities to join in on specialized FREE guided tours of Hitchcock Woods, Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary, and the North August Brick Pond Park. In addition, the program will offer a chance to "Meet the Professional" to learn more about digital photography, nature conservation, ecosystems and more!
