NextGen Animal Responders
Dawn and Shedd Aquarium are working together to inspire next generation of wildlife enthusiasts.
Teachers that teach fifth through eighth grade now have the opportunity to learn about NextGen Animal Responders. This is a program that focuses on environmental and science literacy, students will work with the Shedd Aquarium to learn and connect to nature. Students who are in an urban setting may not have the opportunity to do this otherwise.
Chicago Public Schools will be able to participate in an in classroom roadshow and contest. Students from 25 selected schools will be able to meet guest speakers from Shedd. During the activities, students will be engaged in learning and even have material to take home to their parents.
I love this initiative and how Shedd and Dawn are working together to make things better on our earth. Kids that are being taught may not have had the experience to do so otherwise. Dawn Dish Soap is known to be the most effective detergent for cleaning oiled animals. It removes the tough grease and makes it easier for animals to go back into wildlife without hassle.
Shedd Aquarium has always worked with partners around the world. The Next Generation Animal Responders are a way to help kids learn and teach students how to protect wildlife.
