    Beyonders Challenge Program Spring 2021 Courses 


    The Beyonders Challenge Program was created in 2020 in order to fulfill students’ desire for exposure to courses they would not necessarily be taking during their regular school hours. Our curriculum design is focused on creative thinking, active learning, and the role of context in education. This program is currently 100% online for the foreseeable future with a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous activities occurring from approximately 9am-3pm

    Registration is now open to students in grades 8th-10th for the upcoming February 27th, March 20th, and April 10th program dates for the following courses: 

    Disease Detectives: Introduction to Microbiology and Epidemiology  

    Rube Goldberg 

    Podcast Production 101

    It is that time of the year once again to send in your chapter's Annual Report (download from Local Chapter page).  If you do not yet have officers named for the 20-21 school year, just list the person that should be the chapter's contact person until these officers been finalized.

    Also, don't forget that if you send in your initial 2020-2021 members' roster by December 1st, your chapter will earn a complimentary 2021 Convention registration.  And, if you increase your membership from last year by 25 or more members, you will earn a second complimentary 2021 Convention registration.

    Note: You may send in additional members all year as your chapter grows. Please submit these on separate spreadsheets with the date submitted and an invoice will be emailed to you..
