I have been involved with the EV's for over 20 years. During that time, I've been a client, a volunteer, a board member, and a donor. It is a wonderful organization that delivers year after year in implementing their mission statement to deliver a hands-on science experience to elementary age school children. With the cut backs in education, science is not a priority. The EV's bring a science experience in the classroom and in the field that may me the only science experience for the students.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

my classroom. I've had EV's delivering a service in my classroom every year to every grade that I teach. It enhanced my curriculum to have the EV's present a program.

My school, every classroom, has received class room visits from EV for several years. The volunteers teach many subjects ranging from science to social studies. Each visit is highly anticipated by the children. They know that their experience will be hands-on, interesting and educational. This organization has highly enhanced our students' educational experience. They allow us, as teachers, to provide realia and experiences that are not readily available to us. What a great organization!

In February 2010, the EV docents came to my classroom to teach about ocean pollution, riparian habitat, and mammal skeletons. Using stations and hands-on materials, my students participated in activities that touched on several scientific concepts. Observing mammal skulls gave them the

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

building a vehicle using an energy source other than fossil fuel. I used solar panels.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

fun, good at their job but in a fun way, and generally kept the kids under control.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

build a nice camp in a nice building so we're not just outside all the time. It could provide food that is good for the environment and has less packaging. It could buy materials that are more environmentally friendly.

Ways to make it better...

the camp had shorter hours--I don't like long long hours. Also, if it were in a climate controlled building. It was hot outside

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

how the counselors have to deal with campers they haven't met before. That must have been hard.
