Supporting of the Education for Teachers & Youth
National Capital Chapter of SCI
The National Capital Chapter of SCI has been very supportive of educating teachers and youth about the benefits of hunting and conservation. NCC has sponsored 36 Hands on Wildlife kits and purchased additional specimens from the Minnesota Trappers Association to supplement other educational projects. In addition, they have sponsored over 10 teachers to go to AWLS, and each teacher received their own HOW kit.
Most recently, at Harper Park Middle School, where Sables Rep Beth Robinson is the Principal, the 7th grade students used the school’s HOW kit on the first day of school with an activity called “Who Done IT”. This has been an annual tradition for the 7th grade Science Team. They believe that students should begin school, even on Day One with a fun educational experience where the students have to work together.
