'SurvivalFest 2012' at Hillview School

A rock-climbing wall, make-your-own survival bracelet, and an appearance by Game Truck, a mobile audiovisual and video-game studio will among the exhibits at SurvivalFest 2012, a one-day program for seventh-graders on Thursday, April 12, at Hillview Middle School in Menlo Park.

SurvivalFest is new this year, replacing the seventh-grade Renaissance Faire day, which has been retired after 20 years.

During SurvivalFest, students will compete in teams to make shelters, apply simple navigation techniques, prepare for hot and cold natural environments, practice emergency first aid, and learn other survival skills.

"This will be a unique experience that students of all interests and abilities won't soon forget," says Kim Staff, Hillview seventh-grade social studies teacher.
