The camp at Senegal concluded this week with laughing, playing, and a few tears. The students made kites, built catapults, and learned the concept behind Newton’s apple. They wrapped up various projects and created a PowerPoint presentation.

iNERDE Senegal’s Graduation Ceremony was enjoyed by the students who proudly showed off their projects to parents and guests.

Students at the camp in Mali had another busy and exciting week.

The students in Mali had two field trips this week. They visited the hydroelectric dam at Energie du Mali and the national TV station ORTM (office de radio-diffusion television du Mali) where they got a behind-the-scenes look at the technology behind broadcasting.
