TEN YEARS AT A GLANCE
TEWS ’04 is the sixth international science residential
camp held at schools,
colleges and sites across the nation. TEWS was launched in
1994 at Choate
Rosemary Hall Preparatory School in Connecticut and since has
been held at
Camp Algonquin, fifty miles outside Chicago; Talladega College
Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire; and Colorado School
in Golden, Colorado.
TEWS was introduced internationally to high school students
in day programs in
South Africa and Tunisia. Beginning in 1999, the TEWS curriculum
learning was expanded overseas to adults at the Zermatt Creativity
Symposium held in Switzerland each year.
To mark the beginning of the new millennium, DJF and TEWS
launched a series
of special programs which included: Shaping the World, an international
contest with seven winners who came together in Chicago to
share ideas; a
24-hour International Internet Youth Conference hosted by the
winners where students came on-line around the globe to discuss
importance to their present and future; Listening to the Future,
a worldwide survey
soliciting youth opinions; and Reality leads Fantasy Gala which
responsibility to commit to the future today.
In 2001, DJF enhanced its programming even more by designing
non-residential summer program based on the TEWS curriculum
the four-week program to a non-residential setting.
