  • University of Washington
    UDub is more than an academic institution—it’s a small city within Seattle itself. Guides lead free tours Monday through Friday, but the campus—with its breathtaking views of Mount Rainier and the historic Drumheller Fountain—is always open to explore.

  • Chess4Life
    In the years that it took him to achieve the national master title, Elliott Neff learned that chess is more than just a game. He found that math competency, critical thinking, spatial reasoning, and other essential skills are honed as one plays. So, when he sits down to give one of his students a lesson, he thinks of it not as a diversion but, as his company's motto puts it, as "teaching life skills through chess." To help him expand the reach of his philosophy, Elliott has assembled a team of more than 35 local and national chess champions. During group classes and private lessons, these coaches motivate students to exercise their mental agility while learning the correct way to outsmart kings.

  • Center for Lifelong Learning
    Akin to declaring that the sun is big, saying that Jackie Alan Giuliano loves learning is a giant understatement. The president of the Center for Lifelong Learning, Dr. Giuliano has embraced all forms of knowledge throughout his career, including a 20-year tenure at NASA, a PhD, and artistic endeavors in digital photography and the construction of dreamcatchers. Through extensive research, he and his team at the center have cultivated speed-reading lessons designed to boost the number of words students aged 12 and older read every minute and increase retained knowledge by revisiting the way the brain processes reading. They have helped those with learning challenges such as dyslexia build confidence and equip all students with the skills to excel at school, work, or while rapidly reading instructions to successfully diffuse bombs.
