Program Description

This workshop consists of a short film, Pigeon, followed by an interactive presentation by a VHEC docent on Zoom.

Questions by the workshop facilitator foster critical thinking and ideas about social responsibility with students. The interactive workshop stimulates student thinking about the choices we all make and our motivations for making them.
