Follow these helpful tips:
1. Talk to the decision-maker at your school who can approve hosting the program.
Students participating in the program will miss some of their other classes so you’ll need to work with your administration for approval to host the Economics and Government Program during a school day. The content builds throughout the day so the same group of students should participate from beginning to end. It’s like an in-school, content-rich field trip without the hassle of scheduling chaperones or buses! And, we provide the entire program at no cost to you or your school!
The program is a minimum of three hours and a maximum of four hours. We also offer an optional one-hour college talk at the end of the program to discuss the mechanics of applying to and selecting a college, how to choose a major and some advice for negotiating how to pay for college.
You’ll also need to secure a space large enough to accommodate your group of students. This could be in the library, an auditorium, or some other assembly space. The room must have a screen and projector that connects to a laptop.
2. Contact FEE to secure a date for the program. (Submit the form below and then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a date to visit).
We’ll work with you to find a date that works with your schedule and with our faculty. We’re currently booking visits for the 2019-20 academic year.
3. About a month before the program, FEE will confirm the details of our visit with you.
We’ll ask to confirm the number of students who will participate to ensure we bring enough materials and we will schedule a shipment of books and brochures to arrive around the time of the program. At this time, we will also work with you on a detailed schedule for the day, including arrival instructions and the times that the seminar should begin and end, so that we can make appropriate travel arrangements.
4. Enjoy the program!
On the day of the program, we hope that you will sit-in the seminars and even participate in the experiments. Your colleagues—teachers and administrators—are welcome to join us too as their schedule permits.
