You know that I have a soft spot for Project Exploration (just see this for starters), so when Gabrielle Lyon asks me to spread the word about their activities, I am more than happy to oblige. Here is the announcement of their latest action – and you may be interested or know someone to forward this to who can find it useful:
Are you running a science program for middle or high school students this summer in the Midwest? Project Exploration wants to know about it!
Project Exploration is seeking Midwest programs to include in Discover Your Summer, a free resource guide of summer science opportunities for middle and high school students. This guide will reach thousands of students, teachers, and families throughout Chicago and the Midwest in print and online in mid-March, 2008.
THERE IS NO COST TO BE INCLUDED IN THIS GUIDE.
If you are based in the Midwest, (MN, WI, MI, IA, IL, IN, OH, NE, KA, MO, OK), and would like your middle or high school program to be included in Discover Your Summer, please complete the form below [I cannot reprint it here so you will have to ask for it by e-mail] and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax the form back to us 347-693-6266.
The deadline for being included in the guide is January 11, 2008. If you have any questions please call 347-693-6266.
Thank you for joining our efforts to increase access to summer science opportunities and to helping all students stay involved with science year-round!
