DO WE DO?
TEWS develops and puts on various projects and events that build
science literacy and promotes responsibility and understanding
of science, technology and the environment and their impact
on society—and societies’ impact on them!
The premier project is TEWS four week residential international
science camp held each summer for 12-16 year olds. Past camps
have been held at many different locations, including Dartmouth
College, Colorado School of Mines, Choate Rosemary Hall, Camp
Algonquin and Talladega College. At the camp students search
for solutions to current global dilemmas.
TEWS camp curriculum is complemented by other self-contained
activities. Through these “mini-achievements” the
students experience multiple accomplishments throughout the
camp. These activities include a cultural program where students
share stories, news, dances, sports from the country or city,
physical fitness and sports, Night Sky, computer training, Radio
TEWS, Guest Teacher Visits and Field Trips.
This year TEWS 2004 will be held at Willamette
In an effort to reach even more people, TEWS has developed
non-residential event in partnership with museums and universities
country. Also, connecting more students than ever before, “Earth
On-Line X 24”
is an International Internet Youth Conference allowing kids from
around the world
to share their hopes for science and technology in the future.
