Dani’s Dreams is “Spreading Our Wings” as we grow our education programs with Eco Lessons in Southern Hancock Schools, Dani’s Dreams Go Green Outdoor Education Center at Zion Lutheran School and the Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Trail at Sugar Creek Township Park coming this fall. Proceeds from this fall bulb sale will go to provide area students in grades K-12 with innovative, hands-on lessons.

Good day, sunshine! ECOFEST 2016

Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Programs and New Palestine High School teacher Brittany Bennett and her students hosted ECOFEST 2016 April 15, celebrating bringing innovative STEM education activities to Southern Hancock students. Students, parents and grandparents took the challenge and enjoyed bubbles, gliders and saw the liftoff of a solar balloon thanks to NPHS student volunteers at the Dani’s Dreams Outdoor Education Center at Zion Lutheran School.

Ana Ostendorf and Allison Norman gave students in attendance a sneak peak at the ECOFEST solar energy lesson. All those in attendance saw solar in action thanks to David Griffin and learned how this renewable energy works in a video produced by our Dani’s Dreams reporters Sarah and Emily Adam.
NPHS Alumnus Ryan Schroeder tested ECOFEST participants’ knowledge of invasive species with his “Friends or Foes” game. Schroeder is the president of the Purdue University Environmental Science Club. DNR Project Learning Tree Coordinator Donna Rogler shared her extensive knowledge and seedlings to take home. Willing Hands Entertainment provided free facepainting for all kids!
