All of the students are excited getting ready for the presentation tomorrow, where they will be presenting their research to their classmates as well as the greater Barbudan community, and the local television station will be there filming them to include the footage in upcoming broadcasts! It is a very exciting opportunity for them to dialog about Barbuda’s past with the members of the community, and the inclusion of their videos on our program website will allow them to connect and share their research with other communities world wide! There is much preparation to do before the day is over today, but the students are extremely enthusiastic and Mr. McGovern, Mr. Cornell and I are looking forward to them doing an amazing job tomorrow representing Sir McChesney George and the GPS+Camera Project! GO TEAM!!
