We'd like to thank the following individuals and organizations who have made significant contributions to our class.
Vision Maker Media provided high-quality, priceless videos for our class to view. The videos were historically accurate, culturally sensitive and balanced, visually stunning, and utterly memorable. We particularly appreciated the series We Shall Remain #4: Geronimo. Vision Maker Media exists to serve Native producers and Indian country in partnership with public television and radio. Vision Maker Media works with Native producers to develop, produce and distribute educational telecommunications programs for all media including public television and public radio.
Tom went out of his way to provide our class with an excellent day-long, hands-on tutorial on the design and construction of his winning competition boat design. Our class launched three teams in the 2017 Bodega Bay Wooden Boat Challenge, sweeping the field with First, Second, and Third Place wins in the Elementary Youth Division. A native of France, Tom came to the United States at a young age. He grew up in Southern California where he developed his passion for the water.
K.D. greatly enriched our Ancient India block by transforming the room with her extensive collection of authentic Indian cloths and artistic pieces. She also came in every day for three weeks to lead our class through the ancient discipline of Yoga, telling ancient legends of the Avatars as well as personal stories from her travels through India.
The staff at Batteries Plus provided honest, authoritative old-time advice and several creative ideas in my efforts to put together a set of off-the-grid solar lighting projects for our class camping expeditions.
