Each one of you work so hard...now it's your turn to play hard!
Get involved and spend some of your free time taking up one of these opportunities that are sure to create memories that will last a lifetime.
1. Full-time teachers grades 7-12: The National World War I Museum Teacher Fellowship program is really good -I did it! It's also FUNDED. BTW, the museum is in Kansas City, not DC. The fellowship dates are June 24-27, but the application deadline is Apr. 5 (and there are a lot of parts to it). For more information, go to: https://theworldwar.org/
2. Full-time middle school and high school teachers (with at least 3 years of teaching experience): The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has a FUNDED week-long summer program (July 13-18) as part of their Bridging Cultures Initiative. U.S. teachers will get the chance to interact with foreign teachers from 20 different countries in order to enhance your ability to infuse your curriculum with multicultural perspectives. The program, accommodations, and some meals are provided, as well as a small stipend and some travel costs, if necessary. But space is limited.

3. This one is for high school students: an intensive 6-day course at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, from June 14-15, on ""Sustainable Futures: Sustainability in a Global Context." Students get to live on campus, attend programs, and get 1 college credit for doing it. The cost is $1000; however, there are need-based scholarships available. For more information, go to: http://publish.illinois.edu/
4.Framingham State University is the host of a day-long science extravaganza for learners of all ages.
