 Futurekids Frontiers


 
Equipped with computers and their problem solving skills, students embark on an adventure to the outer limits of their physical, natural, and cultural worlds. Activities include researching, charting, and graphing information about endangered species and creating a multimedia chronicle of adventures to exciting destinations like deserts, rain forests, and oceans.

 
 Futurekids Media International
 
Students assist a media organization, Futurekids Media International (FMI), by using their technology skills to integrate technology into the company. Activities include creating a multimedia kiosk presentation to promote FMI and designing and producing an online game for the company's web site.

 
Operation Futurekids
 
A team of students has been commissioned by various organizations to troubleshoot problems around the world. Activities include creating a multimedia time capsule for future generations to view and researching world wildlife species by collecting, sorting, and classifying various types of information.

 

Within all units, primary and ongoing technology foci, as well as academic foci, are identified. The emphasized academic subject areas include language arts, mathematics, science and social studies.
