KENYA - US Project

Building an International School Club Collaborative Focused on Sustainability and Technology

Project Partners:

  • Indiana University - Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI): School of Education, Indianapolis, IN, USA
  • Moi University: School of Education; Eldoret, Kenya
  • Six K-8 Schools:
    • Indianapolis - SENSE, Paramount, Joyce Kilmer
    • Eldoret - Kandie, Borderfarm, Central Primary

Project Activities:

All schools started with after school science clubs focused on Project-Based Learning (PBL) with the intent of accomplishing a project that improves their environment. Students are encouraged to take autonomy for the design of these projects with guidance from their teachers.

Technology used throughout the project include iPads for each school to take part in bi-monthly video conferencing with their international partnering school. Students also use a variety of Labquests to help perform scientific investigations on their school grounds.
