What is Rivers & Revolutions?

We are about to float down the stream! On August 9th, 2010, The Concord River School will host "Rivers and Revolutions" - a tuition-free interdisciplinary experience. Viewing these twin phenomena through the lenses of literature, history, science, mathematics, philosophy, and the arts, we will contemplate the passage of time and will consider our own relationship to all that surrounds us.

If you are a rising junior or senior in high school, you are encouraged to
apply to participate in Rivers & Revolutions. Applications for 2011 available soon.

Students from Leominster to Boston will come to Concord to participate in this two week course, spending mornings in the classroom, and afternoons in the field. We will explore the writings of Aldo Leopold and Annie Dillard, canoe the Concord River, examine the development of early civilizations along floodplains, stroll through Minuteman National Historical Park, contemplate the relationship of circles and lines, hike across glacial deposits, and revel in the waters of Walden Pond. And more. Much more.
