Highlights for High School

The Highlights for High School team has been working feverishly all summer to capture new content for the website, and we have some very exciting courses in store, including several from the Educational Studies Program. We will keep you updated and will provide more details later in the summer. Meanwhile we hope you will continue to explore the Highlights website.

Specifically, we want to showcase our "Save the World" section. Here you can find a number of course focused on international development, media, and technology. You can learn such things as landmine removal, communication technology in Africa, and media education and the marketplace, to name just a few topics. So go ahead, learn more about the issues facing our world. We hope these courses will inform, inspire, and influence you to get involved, whether it’s in your own neighborhood or a country halfway around the world.
