Mission: To provide students with experimental and hands-on opportunities to understand our local environment from a practical, cultural, historical, and scientific perspective. Rationale: Ohi:yo territory is ecologically diverse and geologically unique. This program would provide an opportunity for students to get outside and learn about the environment surrounding them. Beyond the learning, students would participate in preserving and strengthening the sustainability of this territory. As a school district we have pledged to "stand with all indigenous people in their resolve to remain connected to their land/" The "Conservation Warriors" is one step in that direction. Methods: Students will meet bi-weekly with SCCSD club advisor with a goal toward projects and fieldstrips designed in collaboration with the Seneca Nation Conservation Department and Seneca Nation Water Protection. Projects and field trips could include but not limited too... -Environmental Impact of Kinzua Dam: *Fishery *Natural Medicines *Water Quality *Health of flora and fauna -Seneca Nation outdoor learning center -Sustainable hunting and fishing -Visiting the local sugarbush
-Bi-Weekly Mondays 2:45pm-4:45pm -Four all day field trips -Some Thursdays as needed *Location: Mrs.Pickett's room 68 in the High School, various locations for fieldtrips

Cooking Under Pressure
Student participants will learn to shop, prepare, and serve a meal for those present using a pressure cooker. They will learn about heat transfer, pressure difference, temperature at which water boils (at varying pressures) and how rapidly we could make a delicious, tasty meal using a pressure cooker. A school van will drive 4-6 students to the grocery store the day before to shop for ingredients (we'll organize our shopping list by store section, talk about the nutritional value of each item, inspect expiration dates, calc the cost per servings, etc.) bring it back to school and stash the ingredients in a fridge. We'll meet the following afternoon to prepare, cook, and serve a meal in a tasteful, welcoming manner. We will also learn responsibility by cleaning up after ourselves leaving the kitchen in better condition than we found it.
TBD, Contact Dr. Hayes with interest
Some of the meals in mind are Dr. Hayes' favorites: Chicken, Potatoes, Carrots & Gravy/ Beef Stew/ Homemade Spaghetti Sauce/ Corn Chowder with Turkey Sausage/ Spiral Cut Ham & 15 bean soup/ Tender Pot Roast, Potatoes & Gravy
Data Analysis & Data Visualization
We can't escape the reach of technology. We are being bombarded with lots of information of varying levels of reliability. How can we learn to assess the accuracy of the underlying date, tests its veracity (truthfulness), and visualize the data in the compelling ways? (Think maps, infographics, interactive charts & graphs, etc.) Even if you haven't taken Dr. Hayes GIS of Programming classes you are welcome to join. You will learn cool Data Manipulation trickles in Excel, Data Visualization skills in Tableau, Data Capture and Analysis using Databots, and simple Map Generation and Analysis in GIS.
