Time seems to be flying by here at iNERDE’s Colonie de Vacances STEM as we just finished up our second week in Mali! This week the students focused on physics, anatomy, natural science, and engineering. They built marshmallow catapults, studied the circulatory system, and constructed spaghetti drawbridges.
“The most rewarding part of my week was watching Mohamadou struggle with uncooperative pasta and hands caked with glue, and then turn to me in a moment of pride and exclaim ‘We have become Civil Engineers!’ That proclamation captured the essence of our vision; to show our 4th and 5th graders that they are the leaders of tomorrow who will transform their surroundings for the better.”
– Rebecca Brosseau, iNERDE Empowerment Agent
Thanks again to all of our week two activity sponsors!
