Scholars tag hats for Save the Children

Honors scholars spent time tying tags onto newborn caps that were knitted and crocheted for Save the Children's Caps for Good campaign.  Knittany Lion Needleworks, and their friends at Granite Farms Estates, created 492 caps for children in Asia, Africa, and Latin America.  But each cap needed a tag attached before they could be shipped off.  In a two-hour period, the scholars assisted Knittany Lion Needleworks by attaching a tag to each cap.  One of students, Schreyer Scholar Eileen Fresta, even crocheted 50 caps herself to contribute to the project!

EARTH 111U Skypes with Water.org

On Friday, February 11, the scholars enrolled in EARTH 111U (Water: Science and Society) Skyped with a guest speaker from Water.org.  The class learned about the mission and projects of the nonprofit organization and the impact they are making in bringing clean water to developing countries.
