As part of the Canadian Aboriginal Youth Science Initiative (CAYSI) I spent the summer of 2005 as a Volunteer Teacher with Elephant Thoughts, teaching Science Camps at First Nations Bands in Eastern and Central Canada. Sent out in teams of two, we were in the classroom Monday-Friday with 15 to 25 spirited children, and then weekends on the road driving to the next location -- probably 11,000 kms in all. A great experience. Makes you realize how diverse and big a country we live in -- Not much cell phone coverage outside of major cities ... and where is the next Starbucks?
Feel free to contact me here if you have questions about my experience with the program.
