One World Journeys, the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum and EPSON teamed up to help Tuscon-area youth see the desert in a whole new light. With the help of Epson Photo PC3000z digital cameras, 5th and 6th grade students in the "Coyote Patrol" program learned about the natural history of the desert by capturing digital images and immediately seeing the results of their work.

Incorporating Epson's digital cameras into the summer program "really helped the kids observation skills," said Education Specialist Kathy Moore, " and it was one of the highlights of the week." During the summer program, school children were exposed to the mysterious wonders of the Sonoran Desert, such as the fact that scorpions glow in the dark when exposed to ultraviolet light sources. And in order to explain how Sonoran Desert wildlife has adopted to nocturnal life, Patrick was chosen from the group to model a large nose, large ears and special reflective glasses to illustrate the fine tuned senses of desert wildlife.
