Community Partnerships: Multidistrict projects

Our department has a long history of K - 12 partnerships.

Virtual Burnham Initiative

Lake Forest College included teachers and students at LFHS in the Virtual Burnham project.  LFC Professor Davis Schneiderman received a grant to transform the flat images and maps of the Plan of Chicago into 3-D models that overlay modern-day Chicago using Google Earth. LFHS students were invited to take photographs of today’s Chicago and several of the photographers were honored for their excellent work. One student’s work was featured on a photography book cover.

Next steps
    Although the Virtual Burnham Project has not received additional grant money, the website advertises a grand opening in mid-June. Please visit: http://vbi.lakeforest.edu/.
    Professor Schneiderman will be invited to visit LFHS Social Studies classes to lecture and showcase the Virtual Burnham Project.

Project Explore

Project Explore was a three-week residential summer science program for talented middle school boys and girls. From 1999 - 2005 Project Explore invited students to explore the wonders of the natural world through active science projects. The program emphasized experiencing nature instead of being told about it. Field trips to places such as Volo Bog, Milwaukee Public Museum, Glacial Park, and other sites were complemented by hands-on opportunities in Lake Forest College’s state-of-the-art science laboratories. The program was run by Lake Forest College professors, teacher alumni, and undergraduate education majors.
