Birds Across Borders Goes to the American Ornithological Society Conference

Help me give my students a chance to present a poster at a professional conference for an abstract they wrote themselves and got accepted.

My Students

As the only K-12 STEM School in Colorado, these students are multiple grades and subjects. These students are eager to work across the globe with people from different backgrounds, beliefs, and knowledge.

You will see in our students great joy because they are passionate about their learning.

In our student-driven approach, the students push the boundaries of innovative learning, thinking, and doing.

A high level of student engagement is the result of knowing that their thoughts on how to solve world problems are valued. We put their innovation in the center of learning to unleash the potential of all students and prepare them for an exponentially changing world.

My Project

Not only have my students put their full passion into the Birds Across Borders project, but they wrote an abstract, submitted it to a professional conference (American Ornithological Society), and had it accepted! This on its own is an incredible accomplishment for high school students and is providing an invaluable professional opportunity for them; an opportunity I don't want them to miss due to financial costs.

By helping my students present a poster at a professional conference, you are not only giving them an incredible boost in confidence and their career, but helping them expand the mission of Birds Across Borders to connect, unify, and affect students globally.

These students are committed to uniting school curriculum, students around the world, and professionals using a common focal point: birds. Where better to expand on their vision than at a professional conference with some of the biggest names and organizations in Ornithology?

Thank you for considering this project and helping my students continue to accomplish amazing things.
