Lunch Break Science and Environmental Education
A SECTA partnership between OLLI at the University of Richmond, the Science Museum of Virginia and the VCU Rice Center for Environmental Life Sciences
OLLI at the University of Richmond and the Science Museum of Virginia worked in partnership to attract senior citizens who had not previously attended the museum's ongoing Lunch Break Science education programs. Seniors attended a day-long program at the Rice Center to learn more about environmental issues.
Topics covered in the Lunch Break Science sessions included: The Galapagos, Sri Lanka and Elephants, Natural Disasters and Chinese Medicine. The VCU Rice Center program focused on the fragile habitat of the James River.
