April is winding down, but there are still two great opportunities for you to consider, with deadlines fast approaching.
DEN Summer Institute: Apply by April 26
The DEN Summer Institute is an opportunity for STARs from all around the world to get together for a week of intense (but fun) professional development and networking. This year’s institute will take place from July 18-23, 2010 at Bentley University in Waltham, MA just twenty minutes west of Boston. (They are intense but in the most fun way possible).
Any STAR Discovery Educator can apply to attend the institute. The DEN takes care of meals, lodging, materials and fun. Attendees are only responsible for their travel costs.
Have you decided what to do for Earth Day? EarthEcho International is offering an exciting opportunity for you and your students to make a positive difference this April 22…or anytime during the year! Visit the Water Planet Challenge Preview Site for a service-learning guide for middle and high school students that walks them through the steps of a community cleanup, as well as resources and reporting tools.

Just this week thousands of educators and students had the pleasure of participating in a webinar with EarthEcho International CEO, Philippe Cousteau. What a great way to say thanks to Philippe and his organization by encouraging your students to check out the Water Planet Challenge.
