On Oct. 15, parents of students from more than 25 Title I schools in CCSD attended the Title I Family Learning Academy at the East Las Vegas Community Center. Led by Craig Rosen of GreenPower Southern Nevada, parents went on a virtual field trip to places like Springs Preserve, Red Rock Canyon and the Wetlands Natural Conservatory. Rosen then gave the parents a hands-on seed-growing experiment to take home. The program helped parents inspire their children to make science discoveries in their own backyards.
