Meet the Directors
Osmel Rodriguez is an environmental science teacher at American Heritage. He holds a degree in secondary science education with a specialty in earth and space sciences. Mr. Rodriguez’s passion for all things science has brought him to American Heritage Science Adventure Camp, where he can share his excitement for science and the world of nature with young minds. Mr. Rodriguez believes the best way to engage students is to fully immerse them into the world of science through an array of activities, experiments, and field trips. The camp environment allows him to do this in a manner that is fun, educational, and tangible for children of all ages. It is his hope that the young people that he works with over the summer will gain a deeper appreciation for science and continue to learn and education themselves and the people they encounter.
