The six-week course turns children into travel agents seeking to promote business and tourism.

The tourism office says teams study geography, map reading, weather, math and economics, as well as the history of the Indiana region they pick to promote. The teams then develop multimedia projects based on what they've learned.

Course resources are free and available at VisitIndianaTeachers.com.
