2005-2006 Year-End Celebration

A chocolate cake decorated with the "Exploring California Biodiversity" logo was served.
On Saturday, May 13, over 150 students, teachers, and family members from our four participating schools gathered at the UC Berkeley campus. Students shared slide-show presentations about their unique experiences on GK-12 field trips and classroom activities. The GK-12 director, Rosie Gillespie, honored each of the classes and school teachers with framed plaques. Finally, the audience congregated outside to visit the many posters and displays created by students and to enjoy some light refreshments.
