New experiences . . . and a success story

By Christine L. North

Today was a day of new experiences.  Our group headed out to El Cercado, a community in the mountains about an hour from San Juan de la Maguana, where there is both a school and a clinic.

Our engineering/education team held a teacher workshop with the teachers from the El Cercado school.   ONU students from a variety of disciplines (but mostly engineering) worked with these Dominican teachers, providing lessons that incorporate active learning and activities to interest students in math and science.  The activities focus on team work, creative problem solving and critical thinking skills, as well as basic math and measuring skills.
