Project SEE has been a part of the Concord School District for more than 20 years. With a special focus on environmental stewardship, SEE engages over 3,000 elementary students in meaningful, hands-on science each year. From energy in fifth grade to color chemistry in Kindergarten, Concord students become active scientists both in their classrooms as well as at Project SEE headquarters at the White Farm facility. With the adoption of the New Hampshire K-12 Science Curriculum Frameworks by the Concord School District, Project SEE's new challenge is to assist elementary teachers as they implement and assess rigorous science standards.
Chris Demers joined Project SEE in the summer of 1998. After teaching elementary school for nine years in his hometown of Hudson, New Hampshire , Chris made the move to Concord to be closer to his new home. Working for Project SEE allows Chris to focus his effort on science which has been a passion of his for many years in his own classroom. Since receiving the Presidential Award for Excellence in Science Teaching in 1996, Chris has been actively working towards improving his own skills as a science teacher for both students and colleagues.
LuAnne Pigeon loves working with students and teachers through Concord School District's Project SEE. Whether it's exploring winter ecosystems on snowshoes or determining which simple machine will make the work seem easiest, her natural enthusiasm and curiosity support the scientific process of learning about our environment. LuAnne has adopted as her own a Jacques Cousteau quote passed on to her: "If they love it, they will save it". She believes the more children understand the world they live in, the better choices they can make for its safekeeping.
