Inspiring, Imaginative, Innovative
....this is the essence of i3 Missoula.
The program is an embodiment of the 21st Century Model of Education.
In May of 2013, 150 high school students applied for 30 student positions in the inaugural i3 Missoula summer program. Students were guided by three teachers and spent four weeks on the University of Montana campus where they were given the opportunity to engage in highly creative and collaborative problem solving and solution seeking. Missoula County Public Schools is happy to offer this summer program again this year, 2015.
i3 Missoula will run from 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m., Monday - Friday for 4 weeks. All students must commit to attending each day from July 6 - July 31. Some important facts to consider:
- Students will be paid $150/week or a total of $600 for participation.
- Students chosen for participation will be expected to be present for all i3 Missoula activities during these dates.
- Participants will work in collaborative teams of five students.
- Presentation of work will be scheduled for August 1 during the First Friday events.
- The only other requirement for participation is an active curiosity and an interest in learning.
If you believe that i3 Missoula is for you, the first step is to complete the application. All applications must be received electronically by midnight, May 3, 2015.
