Sign Up for Engineer for the Week
 
The Afterschool Alliance is looking for programs interested in participating in Facebook’s Engineer for the Week (EFTW) program for the Summer Sprint Season. EFTW is an immersive, week-long, program that introduces students (ages 13+) to the fast-paced world of engineering. Through project-based experiences EFTW strives to educate and inspire teams of students from all backgrounds on the real-world uses of computer science skills. If you complete Engineer for Week activities with your students and share your opinion with the Afterschool Alliance, you will receive $500 – and the chance for you and four students participating in EFTW to travel to the Facebook campus in California. The Summer Sprint season will run from June 17 to August 23. Each Sprint cycle takes approximately 10-15 hours and can be facilitated at any time during the season. 
 
 
Bring Scientific Exploration Into Your Summer Program
National Geographic’s Explorer Classroom connects classrooms (and out-of-school time programs) around the world with National Geographic Explorers, bringing science, exploration, and conservation to life through live video events. Students have the opportunity to ask the explorer their questions directly. Each month Explorer Classroom features a new theme and provides supporting resources for educators. This summer, the Explorer Classroom will connect kids with a variety of explorers, including a session June 5th with ocean and space exploration teams aboard E/V Nautilus, SUBSEA, blending ocean exploration with ocean worlds research to address knowledge gaps related to the exploration of our Solar System. June events are coming up this week and three July events will be posted soon!
