Research Interests

My name is Glikin and I am currently interested in bringing outdoor components of education to the public and private school sector. I wish to combine parts of environmental education schools, outdoor education schools, science centers, etc into a program that takes public and private school students outdoors. I feel that it is very important to have required outdoor components in our education systems and thus I wish to help our country’s education system in achieving this.
