Business in brief

The science of learning

Institute provides insight for Henrico teachers

Even those who teach don’t stop learning, as exemplified by nine Henrico elementary school teachers who spent a month this summer learning how to teach science better. But the Elementary Science Institute’s participants are far from finishing their studies, because now it’s their turn to teach Virginia what works in science education.

The “students” of the Elementary Science Institute (ESI) receive training in how to teach science with a hands-on learning model, and then return to their own classrooms. > Read more.

Dancing the summer away

A handful of Henrico students willingly gave up much of their summer to spend six hours a day, six days a week for more than a month dancing toward their dreams.

These eight young people were among the 170 students participating in the School of Richmond Ballet’s five-week Summer Intensive Program. The dancers range in age from 12 to over 20, but all share a passion and love of dance, and many hope to make a career out of it. > Read more.
