Be a Cultural Ambassador!
IPERC invites you to join us this summer for a week of cultural exchange and collaboration with students from China! In this one-week cultural immersion program, students will have the chance to participate in academic activities in various subjects, leadership opportunities, and exciting field trips across Ohio. Throughout this experience, US students will act as “American Ambassadors” and take the lead during many activities and events. Camp destinations include The Ohio State University, Hocking Hills, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, just to name a few. The aim of this program is to foster mutual understanding, respect, and cultural engagement amongst young Americans and their international peers from China.
At the beginning of the camp, you will be paired with a small group of Chinese students. Throughout the week you will serve as the group leader, thereby gaining leadership experience, volunteer hours, and lifelong friendships. In addition, during one evening of the camp experience, you will have the chance to welcome your new friends to your home for a host family dinner. The cost is only $65 for the full-week session and covers meals, transportation, and all supplies. For more information, feel free to take a look at all of the information on our website at http://www.iperc.org/home/2019-multicultural-summer-experience/ and click “Enroll Now” to register.
We hope you choose to join us for a week of fun and cultural exchange!

Want a chance to win a $250,000 scholarship?
Enter the Breakthrough Junior Challenge video contest this year. Students ages 13 through 18 are invited to create a short— under three minutes— video explaining a challenging concept in physics, mathematics, or the life sciences in an engaging, illuminating, and creative way.
In addition to awarding a $250,000 college scholarship to the winner, the Breakthrough Junior Challenge will give the winner’s teacher a $50,000 prize and the winner’s school a new $100,000 science lab.
Past Breakthrough Junior Challenge winners’ videos have collectively been viewed over six million times, teaching a global audience about science and math in the winners’ individual voices. In fact, the finalist videos from last year were so good you can find them on the Khan Academy website here.
The winner will be presented their award on the live, globally televised Breakthrough Prize ceremony on National Geographic, Facebook, and YouTube, where they’ll also meet with world leaders in science, technology, academia, business, and entertainment.
