About Animal x Education

The name "Animal x Education" derives from the two areas of studies that I studied in the university: Zoology (Animal) and Education. Through visits of zoos, teaching work and community events, I developed many ideas to engage children and accompanying adults through custom-made programs, resources and activities.
