AGU in America
The two-week program, which takes place during the first two weeks of August, is very intensive. Students attend three hours of English classes in the morning. After lunch, planned activities include field trips, panel discussions, and lectures on topics of interest to the participants. There are informal activities available in the evenings and daytrips on weekends to places of interest in the surrounding area.
The program is staffed by two teachers (one of whom serves as the coordinator) and three mentors, University of Maryland students who spend afternoons and evenings with the participants and accompany the group on weekend field trips.
