Today we recover a very interesting program that helped kids developing their skills in outside environments. Outdoor education teacher, Adam Argento, was aiming to raise $2545 for the school’s “Quest” program, which combined self-directed learning through outdoor education with the goal of developing leadership skills in Black Diamond High School students.
The money was raised using the crowdfunding for education website “My Class Needs”.
The website, My Class Needs provided learning support for students aged 4 to 18 years in Canadian publicly-funded schools by connecting K-12 classrooms with innovative technology.
