MOREnet has an exciting NEW opportunity for creative, innovative, high school students!
Prototype @ the MISSOURI FUTURE OF LEARNING FORUM is an intensive hands-on design camp immersing passionate and creative students in a collaborative environment to re-imagine the future of learning.
Students will learn how design and design-thinking can unlock real world challenges. Students will work with acclaimed designers and educators crafting new models of the classroom and of learning.
The forum will bring together high school students from across Missouri; large and small, rural and urban. As design participants, students will be fully-immersed in a creative setting, presented with a challenge, spend two days collaborating as a team and talking with innovative designers and educationalists from around the country as they design their prototype solution.
If you know a creative, innovative, student looking to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime event that will enable him/her to meet other students, establish relationships with business leaders, open doors for the future of innovation in Missouri education, then encourage him/her to apply for the Missouri Future of Learning Forum.
The Prototype Design Camp staff and Event Committee (which includes MOREnet staff and member representatives) will select up to 40 sophomore, junior and senior high school students to participate. The online application, design challenge and faculty recommendation(s) will be used to determine candidate selection. Applications will be accepted until Sept. 12, 2011 so don't delay, have your students begin working on their applications soon! MOREnet will notify accepted applicants by Sept. 16, 2011.
The student's out-of-pocket cost to attend is $25 plus travel to Tan-Tar-A, meals outside the forum and incidental expenses. One school chaperone will be required for every two student participants. The chaperone's cost will only be travel to Tan-Tar-A, meals outside the forum and incidental expenses.
MOREnet is currently seeking additional student sponsorships for the forum. If your school or community would be interested in sponsoring a student or becoming a chaperone, please contact Natasha Angell at MOREnet via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
