The Butterfly Project Sustainability at the Most Local Levels
The Butterfly Project is a sustainable research model that gives back to the community in many ways. First, the development of Metamorphosis: Effective Thinking (grades 1-4) provides children with tools to make good decisions and gives our kids an opportunity to grow into their best selves. Second, the data that is generated through the program will raise the awareness of both parents and educators to the importance of critical thinking skills, especially in a world advancing into uncharted territories of emerging technology. Also, this research paradigm has intrinsic potential to spawn longitudinal studies in the fields of yoga, mind-body education, elementary education, sustainability, and more.
