Eco Campus School Membership
We have participated in the Eco Connection Project for two years. It appeals to our students because it is relevant to their concerns of the environment and because it contains fun technological elements and because they enjoyed the craft elements...they enjoyed blogging, and also enjoyed the Eco Campus interactive portion of the project. For the adults, the project came "in a box" meaning it was user-friendly, and also facilitated our goals of nurturing ties to Israel and Am Yisrael, a goal that has become increasingly difficult to accomplish.
