Station Description
The expected 100 students will be divided into 8 houses and assigned to a teacher or ETA to
accompany them to activities, which will be overseen by moderators.
Creating teams will encourage cooperation and teamwork as well as allow attendees to
interact with other students in their district. Dividing them at random will more evenly
disperse more students at differing levels of English proficiency (students with less
proficiency will be able to learn from more proficient students, more proficient students
may solidify their understanding by explaining to other students)
