Proposed Focus Group Activities for WhyReef


In addition to exposing millions of young people to the importance of coral reef ecosystems, another primary goal of this project is to further the understanding of how to effectively link digital learning and museum learning experiences.  To this end we have established a Kid Advisory Council (KAC) that will be in effect for the rest of 2009.  The purpose of the KAC is to pilot additional innovative educational experiences that will link WhyReef and traditional exhibitions and collections.  This KAC will be comprised of twenty students aged 10 to 14.  Ten students will be Chicago-area residents from The Field Museum partner schools, and ten students will be selected from across the country with your guidance.
