How my journey to China began


My journey began when in 6th grade my teacher nominated me for a youth leadership conference in Washington D.C., this was an incredible experience for me. I was able to be in Washington D.C. when the president was elected! I learned so much while I was there and it continued to the alumni conference in Boston that I was invited to attend. This past summer I was invited to go to a medical conference in New York City. I chose to attend because I want to go into the medical field when I am older, particularly neurology. At last this brings me to my trip this coming summer to China! I will be going to Beijing, Hangzhou and Shanghai and learning about Global Challenges and Responsibilities of the Future. This is going to be a fantastic experience for me and I cannot wait to share the rest with you.

Google visits Maine to teach educators

LEWISTON, MAINE (NEWS CENTER) -- Google is offering teachers the chance to use some of its technology -- for free. Some educators got a lesson in how to use these new tools at a summit in Lewiston.

The education team from Google hopes to see the standard book reports evolve into something more modern. Former Maine Governor Angus King says "we've got to start doing education differently because what we're doing now isn't working and yet education is the crucial element of the 21st century."
