2017 IBSC Student Forum
Beyond Discovery: Investigation and Progress
23 – 28 June 2017
The Boys' Latin School of Maryland and Gilman School
Baltimore, Maryland, United States
Join boys from around the globe to attend the IBSC Student Forum to explore the theme of Beyond Discovery: Investigation and Progress, which complements the theme of the concurrent IBSC Annual Conference for school leaders. Along with fellow students, delve into major issues facing society today and brainstorm ways to solve them. Rather than focus narrowly on solutions, investigate these topics from multiple angles and gather perspectives from different groups with varying viewpoints. Begin to understand just how challenging it can be to find a solution amenable to all parties and why progress is often slow. As you investigate, spend one day in Washington, DC, examining the federal government and social issues in U.S. history; another day on the Chesapeake Bay studying problems related to the region’s environment and ecology; and another in Baltimore exploring social issues from the perspective of activists, local government, and business sector. As the program concludes, use what you learn about complex problems and challenges to propose an innovative way to make progress on an issue in your own community.
