You’ve probably already figured out that we work hard to teach kids and adults about cave conservation using CaveSim.  What does that look like?  Here’s a photo of a Manitou Springs Elementary student during their field trip to the CaveSim garage today.  You can tell that the only thing on this student’s mind is our lesson about why you shouldn’t touch cave formations.  The amazing thing about CaveSim is that I’ve had kids come back a year after their first visit and recite back to me everything we taught them about cave conservation.  So, yes, they’re really learning.
Concentrating while caving!
