Lorien Wood School Visits SQCC

Thursday, October 26, 2017

On Thursday 26 October, the fourth and fifth grade classes from the Lorien Wood School in Vienna, Virginia visited SQCC. The students were given a tour of the permanent cultural exhibit, which focused on the historical and cultural significance of irrigation, shipbuilding, and frankincense in Oman. After their tour, students learned about the Omani environment through an interactive lecture presentation. The presentation touched upon topics from Oman's diverse fauna, its unique climate and geography, and Oman's efforts to protect their local fauna, most notably conservation efforts to protect its sea turtle population. Students were engaged throughout the visit and were inquisitive throughout both the tour and presentation.
