UW-Green Bay’s Phuture Phoenix field trip days are set for Tuesday (Oct. 14) and Thursday (Oct. 16). With 1,460 fifth-graders from elementary schools in Brown County and the surrounding areas attending, this year’s participation numbers are the highest ever. The program has hosted a total of 15,781 fifth-grade students since it began in 2003. To help support the record number of participants there will be 268 UW-Green Bay students serving as role models and group leaders for the day, along with more than 90 faculty members. This year’s theme, hands-on history, will offer young visitors a first-hand glimpse of experiential learning in a University setting. Among the highlights, the UW-Green Bay History Club will be leading students in Viking-themed cultural activities like cold-smithing, copper wire weaving, hand spinning wool, and Viking costumes and music. Comments Associate Prof. Heidi Sherman, Humanistic Studies, “We hope it will show the fifth-graders that the college experience is fun and that learning about the past takes many forms.” Read the full news release for more details.
