Since 2016, students in Rachel Bahr’s English 11 class at Bloomington’s Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship have made immersive audio tours about their “sense of place,” someplace they’re personally or sentimentally connected to — or simply “where you aren’t afraid to be yourself.” And they graciously share their videos with Limestone Post’s readers.

Limestone Post is proud to present the 2022 “Sense of Place” project by Rachel Bahr’s English 11 class at the Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship. “From the students who talked about the local teen space downtown to our local college campuses,” writes student Lilly Laudeman, “we’ve created these videos that invite you into our special places.” Click here to discover their “Sense of Place.”
Students in Rachel Bahr’s English 11 class at Bloomington’s Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship share their annual “Sense of Place” project with Limestone Post!

The annual “Sense of Place” project by students at The Academy of Science and Entrepreneurship shows “a sliver of each student’s identity,” writes student Richelle Elkes. But each student’s video, she adds, “gives the viewer a greater understanding of the young people in the community and how their values affect the community of Bloomington.”
