Researchers describe awe as “that sense of wonder we feel in the presence of something vast that transcends our understanding of the world.” People commonly experience awe in nature. According to researchers, experiencing awe diminishes the emphasis on the individual self and encourages people to improve the welfare of others.
Here’s an easy way to introduce club members to the experience of awe. View nature up close and personal with the help of Explore.org’s nature cams. That’s right, club members can watch live nature cams in real time and watch gorillas in Africa, brown bears in Alaska, pandas in China, or bison in Canada.
Club members can experience awe without leaving the classroom. Visit explore.org/livecams or download the Explore2Go app. Connect with the natural world by viewing wildlife in national parks, wildlife reserves, farm sanctuaries
