Welcome to our brand new website! We're still under construction so please bear with us while we work out all the bugs :)

This page contains videos which are helpful to use with each lesson in The Backpack Program.

It is always better to watch the videos in advance and download them to your computer or Backpack USB memory stick. Clearly, quality of internet connectivity can vary and you don't want to be left in the lurch if it lets you down in class. (You can always enlist the assistance of a tech-savvy young participant for this part)
