I got to ride along as the art instructor on this San Juan river trip with Kanab High school students. Every teen should have the option to go on a trip like this without it breaking their parents bank account. Students were so engaged, observant and attentive. They were much more inclined to take an interest in subjects like botany, poetry, watercolor and conservation in this environment than they would ever be in a classroom.
"The Lab" is a place for sharing the results of other creative pursuits. You'll find research, music, experiments, discoveries, and other random stuff. I hope you enjoy these "productive distractions" as much as I do.
