Education has been a vital part of HawkWatch International’s mission from the very beginning. Thousands of people have enjoyed the experience of meeting a raptor ambassador up close while learning more about these charismatic birds. Then COVID happened. Suddenly, the format we had always relied on wasn’t an option anymore.
Faced with the need to totally change their approach, our education department dug deep, creating a complete, raptor-based digital curriculum available through the highly interactive NearPod platform. The results have been tremendous, with schools throughout Utah able to continue participating in our informal science education programs. Even better, this new format has allowed HawkWatch educators to reach students across the country from Maine to Washington.
Join us as we share a bit of history about HWI’s education programs and experience our virtual learning for yourself through an interactive demonstration. We’ll also discuss our education goals for the future and what you can expect if you book a program with us—whether virtual or in-person*. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet a few of our Raptor Ambassadors, ask questions, and enter a giveaway for a free 1-hour virtual presentation of your choice.
*In-person programs are currently limited due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Please reach out to to discuss the possibility of an in-person program.
