Shaler North Hills, Pennsylvania US:
Some of our students have not had the opportunity to leave our county. We would love to provide an opportunity that will allow technology to bring students together. Due to the nature of adolescence, teens tend to find interest in subjects that have a personal relevance to them. Getting to know others in a distant nation would afford them a connection, making the study of current world events more meaningful and more worthy of attention. We would like to implement this program with rising and current seventh and eighth graders, ages 12-14.
