4th Annual MPS United Nations Schools of International Learning World Fair

March 17 | 9:30am - 1:00pm

4th Annual MPS United Nations Schools of International Learning World Fair
 The Milwaukee Public School’s United Nations Schools of International Learning (UNSIL) Program engages 4th – 8th grade students from some of our most diverse schools in learning about countries and cultures from around the world and engages them in research, debate, and problem-solving about global issues.

Through this unique learning experience, MPS UNSIL students master critical academic skills such as research, writing, and presenting with a focus on world affairs and current events.  Students also develop skills in debate, negotiation, and conflict resolution as well as cultivating empathy and acceptance of people from other countries and cultures.

The program finale each year is the MPS UNSIL World Fair where thousands of young people come together at the UWM Panther Arena to present their research projects and enjoy cultural entertainment including singing, drumming, dancing, and a fashion show.

We invite you to participate in the 4th Annual MPS UNSIL World Fair by celebrating with the students; checking out their research projects and exhibitions of the UN countries they are studying; asking questions; and reinforcing their good work.  Many of the UNSIL student presenters are 1st generation Americans who are studying and celebrating their family’s country of origin.

To volunteer for a 1-hour time slot at the 4th Annual MPS UNSIL World Fair, go to www.mpsfdn.org. For more information e-mail Annette Robertson at annettejoanrobertson@gmail.com
