About this event

The Marshall University June Harless Center for Rural Educational Research and Development was established in 2000 with a mission to provide leadership in educational initiatives for West Virginia educators and students. The Center provides educators and families of rural West Virginia with a support system that addresses educational problems, sustains school improvement, and provides positive growth in all educational factors. The Harless Center provides professional development in STEM, early literacy, and early childhood education.

We believe that the outdoor classroom is just as important as the indoor classroom.  With careful thought and planning, STEAM experiences are set up daily in the children’s natural environment.   Providing experiences outside has so many benefits for children.  Children can engage all the senses, develop gross motor skills, explore cause and effect relationships, collaborate with others, and cultivate a sense of wonder.  For this event, we invite families, friends, and community members to join us for an evening of exploring the outdoors.  Children and families will have various opportunities to get down and dirty in the outdoor learning environment.
