Kids Empowering Communities to Prepare for the Future, Birmingham Covington has joined students all over the globe in highlighting our community as a part of International Schools CyberFair, sponsored by the Global SchoolNet Foundation. CyberFair encourages youth to connect the knowledge they learn in school to real world applications.
Endorsed by the White House, the contest encourages students to become ambassadors for their communities, conducting research, working with community members and using technology tools to publish a website that displays their learning. The annual contest involves more than two million students across 115 countries. Birmingham Covington School is participating in the category of Environmental Awareness. 5th and 6th Grade students will build a webpage detailing the history of the River Rouge Watershed and the projects they have engaged in to make a positive impact on the local community. “We can not always build the future for our youth but we can build our youth for the future.” Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Now in its 16th year, CyberFair has been described as the largest educational event of its kind ever held on the Internet. This program brings together more than 2.5 million students across 115 countries.
