What EEME Teaches? 1. Curiosity By combining hands-on projects with online curricula, we tap into kids' innate curiosity by getting them to build with their hands, at the same time as they interact with quizzes that ensure they understand the workings behind the project. 2. Communication By building a platform where kids can mentor other kids in what they've already learned, kids will learn by teaching. Not only that, they will learn how to lead, how to effectively communicate their ideas, and how to break down complex pieces of knowledge into simpler ones. 3. Critical Thinking By explaining the "why" in addition to the "how," we teach kids how to ask questions and to take charge of their learning.

Earn Your Comic Artist Badge!: Dan Conner, with Crazy Good Comics, is an educator and cartoonist based in the Metro Denver area. He is passionate about using artwork to impact our community and finds that comics are one of the best ways to do this! With his series, My Gal, the Zombie, Dan uses our culture’s popular fantasy theme of zombies as a metaphor for diversity. While not including scary content, he hopes that readers can draw parallels between this fiction and real life situations of discrimination. From brainstorming to publication, Dan can equip your girls to not only earn their Comic Artist badge, but to become cartoonist. They can also work on other badges, such as screen writing, drawing, and others. Workshops include advanced instructions geared specifically to their goals using skills with technology, collaboration, leadership, team building, artistic expression, and even bully prevention. He could also work with your troop to release their comics in a variety of formats. Workshops can be scheduled directly by contacting Dan. A minimum of 10 girls are required for a three hour session, and the cost of $12 per girl includes all materials. There is no additional charge for adults. Don’t miss this great opportunity to collaborate with an award winning artist!
