Hanover High School March Intensive

​Wintery weather did not stop the Hanover High School students from delving into a jam-packed week at the VINS Nature Center for their Hanover High School March Intensive. The HHS March Intensive is a four day course where students are able to pick a topic of their choice to learn about.  The students are able to have a meaningful experience that is different from their day-to-day typical high school schedule.  Students are also given the ability to explore something new in a way that does not reflect in a grade.  They can step out of their comfort zone, take some risks and charter unknown territory.  This year’s March Intensive started off slow when winter decided to come in full force, unfortunately making our short week even shorter.  However, even after a snow day and a two-hour delay, we were still able to cover everything from raptor conservation, anatomy and physiology, rehabilitation and more here at VINS.  





​During the week, students created a Public Service Announcement (or PSA) to share something they learned at VINS with others.  Most students created amazing infographics on raptors, including raptor conservation, raptor care and what to do if you find an injured bird.  One group decided that they would create their PSA as a video that discussed what to do if you find a baby bird.
