Endeavour students collaborate with Colgate University’s Benton Scholars

Our sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students have enrolled in a two-week online MOOC course through Colgate University in Hamilton, NY.  Renaissance graduate, Allison Zengilowski, brought this to our attention and Andrew Everett, Director of Endeavour, readily agreed to this great opportunity.  The topic is bread and goes from production to distribution and how the world’s population uses it as a food source.  While enrolled in the class, our students are studying global food supplies, nutrition, farming, local, national, and world issues relating to agriculture.  The course was designed by first year students at Colgate specifically for middle school students.
