CAMAS RIDGE COMMUNITY SCHOOL
DUCK PRINT PROJECT
During the 2012 school year, guided by 2010 Teacher of the Year, Donna DuBois of Camas Ridge Community School, Donna and her 4th & 5th grade class embarked on a cutting edge project to celebrate Eugene’s 150th birthday. Working in conjunction with the following individuals and organizations the “Duck Print Project” was realized:
- The New Learning Institute’s Model Classroom program at the Smithsonian in Washington D.C.
- The Lane Historical Society
- Kari Westlund, President & CEO of Travel Lane County
- David Funk of Bell & Funk Research
- Chris Meeker, President of Imagine Group
- Renee Grube, Executive Director of The City of Eugene Library Recreation & Cultural Services
- Mayor Kitty Piercy
Donna DuBois’s mission was for her students to create digital stories about 20 significant locations in the City of Eugene that would be included in the Travel Lane County Walking Tour. Lane County Farmers Market (formerly Eugene Producer’s Market) was one of the historical sites that was chosen by Ms. DuBois’s 4th/5th grade students.
It is simple really; the historic, digital stories are linked to QR (Quick Response) tags. Anyone with a smart phone simply scans the code located on the Duck Print into their phone and they will be automatically directed to a link of the student’s presentation.
Thanks to Donna DuBois and her students, The City of Eugene is now one of the few places in the nation that provides a walking tour using this quick response technology (QR tag) and we here at Lane County Farmers Market are thankful and proud to be part of this innovative project. Look for our Duck Print at our sites downtown.
