TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Local schools are working to get students more involved in the outdoors.

The fourth annual Kansas Green Schools Conference had people "buzzing" Friday at Farley Elementary - bees were among the demonstrations.

Teachers are learning ways to get students more involved in the outdoors and using nature to learn. The event included hands-on activities like making solar ovens to cook s'mores and technology tools such as all the free things Google can offer for the classroom.

Organizers say using hands on techniques and showing the connections to the everyday world makes a huge difference in interest and learning.

About 75 people attended the seminars.
