|Khan Academy online course, Intro to Biology|
Anim8Nature will be a web-based resource to inspire environmental stewardship built around 10 short animated life cycles of a variety of organisms. Writing and art-making lesson plans will be included to explore the concepts presented in the animations. I am producing and creating the animation.
Emphatically this is a very collaborative project. I am working with a host of educators and scientists as this develops. As an artist I have been a keen observer of nature and active participant in life outdoor since I was very little. My eye and intuitive skills as an observer serve me well in my capacity as an educator and give me great confidence moving forward.

I have just started but was really stimulated by the first lesson: What is Life? Turns out there is no simple black and white answer. It was a very informative and thought provoking conversation and I'm excited about how this will add to my Anim8Nature project.
I am really looking forward to this course and recommend if you have a topic of interest you are curious about, check out Khan Academy.
