Oracle Education Foundation Invites Students and Teachers to Take Part in ThinkQuest International

The Oracle Education Foundation (www.oraclefoundation.org) has announced the opening of a new ThinkQuest competition, ThinkQuest International 2007, and invites students and teachers from around the globe to take part in this collaborative learning experience. The educational contest is open to students between the ages of 9 and 19 and their teacher-coaches from anywhere in the world. The program promotes collaboration and cross-cultural learning by encouraging students to team with peers in other regions to develop Web sites on educational topics. In the process of creating their site, students learn and practice their skills in research, writing, technology, and teamwork. Additionally, the competing teams have the opportunity to create Web sites that can be used as educational resources by students worldwide as part of the ThinkQuest Library, available online at: www.thinkquest.org/library. All submitted Web sites for ThinkQuest International 2007 will be judged by professional educators. Students and educators interested in participating can find further information at the program’s Web site. Deadline: April 16, 2007
