Angela Cunningham and Melissa Harkavy with Their "Landscake", an Edible Landscape Cake
Once a month at CU Boulder, the campus hosts a "creative evening", open to the whole camps, so students can get together, mingle, and share ideas. This month, the event consisted of a cake decorating class, with the theme "What Does Life at CU Mean to You?" These two students, Angela and Melissa, show off their Colorado cake, featuring delicious topography and a mouthwatering river. Now, this is what geographers do!
The Geo-Educator Community
New from National Geographic
With the rapid pace of change in the 21st century, it is more important than ever that young people understand the world around them. However, the focus of current education reform is elsewhere—leaving educators who are committed to teaching young people about their interconnected world out in the cold. National Geographic wants to change all that and is launching the Geo-Education Initiative to improve education about our world. The first step in this initiative is building a Geo-Educator Community for educators who are committed to teaching their students about the world. Connect through the Geo-Educator portal by way of on and off line platforms, social media, newsletters, a blog. Visit the Geo-Educator Community page to learn more.
