Like you, I'm a mom and I want the best for my kids...
the best experiences, the best education, the best childhood.
Perhaps unlike you, I'm also a biologist who researches what it takes to get kids off screens and outside so they're happier, healthier, and smarter. Because when they're outside, they ARE getting the right experiences, a good education, and an amazing childhood.
And I think you would agree that...
Our kids are growing up in a world that's disconnected. They have unlimited information at their fingertips and yet they can't name the tree in their backyard or the bird that nests in it.
Our kids have online "friends" ready to heart their posts, but they have a hard time working in cooperative groups at school.
Our kids spend 4-7 hours everyday being entertained by screens and only 7 minutes outside entertaining themselves. They are disconnected from nature, their community, and themselves.
In addition to being disconnected, they are anxious. They are overweight. They are constantly distracted. They aren't thinking critically. They're easily offended.
The list goes on. But, research shows that being in nature can help with all of these! We just need to get them out there.
If we give them frequent and consistent nature experiences in childhood, then we can help them grow into happy, healthy adults.
If we add a little STEM into the mix, then we're giving them the academic advantage they need to succeed in their future careers.
YOU can foster your kids' health, happiness, and STEM skills by joining our BACK TO NATURE BOOTCAMP!
