Quote from Hilton Head Middle School 7th Grader Science Teacher Jackie Wilhelm abut her student’s experience with “Kids in Kayaks”
This is an absolutely wonderful experience for our students, many of whom have lived here their entire lives but have never been out on the water. They repeatedly ask if we can do this every day!! Jean and her team do an excellent job providing a hands on learning experience. The students were attentive to the instruction taking place and more interested in the content than I have ever seen them in classroom setting. Since returning the students will bring up topics and examples of what they learned on the trip. One key element in this though is the continued availability of funds for scholarships. With roughly 20% of our students unable pay the fees we would not be able to take the trip if funding were unavailable.
