Redefining the Classroom

To Africa . . . with gifts!

Posted: May 9th, 2014

TO AFRICA, WITH GIFTS – Animals from Africa gaze upon Lake Superior State University's Sub-Saharan African Ecology Expedition 2014, shown with some gifts for elementary schools they will be visiting in Botswana and Namibia. The expedition, which also counts as a three-credit biology course, includes canoeing on the Orange River and Okavango Delta; hiking the sand dunes of Namibia, the saltpans and wetlands of Botswana; and a visit to Zimbabwe's Victoria Falls on the Zambezi River. The gifts come courtesy of LSSU's School of Education (school supplies), Laker Hockey (athletic wear), Student Government (soccer balls), and Art for the Nations (craft supplies).
