Objective of Collaboration
When life gives you lemons... make lemonade! 2017 ALEX'S VIRTUAL LEMONADE STAND PROJECT Dates: Project Spirit Rally Kick-Off on Tuesday, May 9, 2017; Project Celebration Wrap-Up on Tuesday, May 23, 2017 Times: 9 a.m. - 10 a.m. EDT (13:00 - 14:00 UTC) Target Audience: Grades K-12, Colleges and Universities, Libraries Cost: FREE! Requirements for Participation: Join from anywhere in the world using either a standard H.323 videoconference system or via a simple web browser using the Blue Jeans interactive video platform available to project registrants through KINBER. Inspired by the journey of Philadelphia-area hero Alex Scott, the Alex's Virtual Lemonade Stand Project celebrates the idea that just one kid can make a difference. Join schools from around the world to raise awareness and money for pediatric cancer research, all while participating in standards-based projects that make the process both inspiring and fun. It's all about kids helping kids -- and we want YOU to get involved! As part of this two week program, each participating school will hold their own lemonade stands to help raise funds for pediatric cancer. Schools can hold one lemonade stand day or a series of lemonade stand events throughout the two weeks. Schools will be able to communicate and interact with one another through the project blog, student-created videos, optional contests, and special videoconference events! Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation is a national organization with Greater Philadelphia roots. The organization grew out of the front yard lemonade stand started by Alexandra “Alex” Scott, a pediatric cancer patient. In 2000, at the age of four, Alex opened her first annual lemonade stand with high hopes of raising money for pediatric cancer causes. Every year thereafter, Alex held an annual lemonade stand in her Pennsylvania front yard and inspired others to donate money to her cause. Be a part of our 11th year of the Alex's Virtual Lemonade Stand Project connecting students around the world through videoconferencing to help raise funds and awareness to end childhood cancers - one cup at a time… If you're looking for a unique and meaningful service learning project for your students, please join us on this incredible journey!
