School Board Meeting 04-17-13 at 5pm
Agenda Item #65

CLS1 - Out of Country Field Trip Activity Request


The Boynton Beach/Lantana Rotary Club is sponsoring a student from the Boynton Beach High School BASA program to attend the Molecular Frontiers Symposium in Stockholm, Sweden.  Destiny Andrews will be the first student from the United States to attend on a Rotary Scholarship. This is an amazing opportunity for her to interact with Nobel Laureates and be an ambassador from our area. Destiny will be accompanied by Physics Teacher, Nicole Neuhengen.

The goal of the symposium is to present and broadly discuss the current view and the future challenges of Life and Exploration in Extreme Environments. The purpose is to engage the scientists, students, children and the general public in one of the most fascinating topics, and thus promote the relevance of science and scientific education in all layers of the society.

They will be departing from the Miami International Airport on May 24, 2013, via Lufthansa at 4:30 PM. Returning May 30, 2013, at 5:45 PM. 

Lodging will be provided by a host family.


I recommend the School Board approve the trip to Stockholm, Sweden for the Rotary Scholarship recipient and chaperone.
