Garrett Scislowicz, a 9 year old from Amana Academy, has raised butterflies as a hobby since age 5. Garrett's family enjoys gardening which led to Garrett's awareness of the importance of butterflies. Garrett's parent's planted dill and parsley every year, which attracted certain types of butterflies as host plants. Garrett father viewed the caterpillars as pests but Garrett viewed them as important pests. So, he carefully removed the caterpillars from the host plants and put them into a butterfly enclosure, caring for them until they went into full metamorphosis. Once they emerged as butterflies he waited until they were ready, then released them into the world. Through The EL Design Principle The Natural World- Garret will show you how he takes care of the butterflies & how they in turn will take care of our planet.



In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
