Today we welcomed Kari Costanza from World Vision who talked to our students about her experiences in Kenya. She’s made several films highlighting various issues which bring a sense of humanity and understanding to the issues. She also answered several question from our Kenyan delegates to help them be better prepared for Model UN.
Check out some of her videos here:

“Technology alone is not enough. It’s technology married with liberal arts, married with the humanities, that yields the results that make our hearts sing.” –
Today students worked with artist Gabriel Brown on an art project involving electronic waste. They were introduced to the thoughts of where the electronics come from and how they are assembled. They then got to break open various electronics and discover what’s inside. While they had a blast, bigger questions are being asked. Next week: what happens to those gadgets when we’re finished with them?
Stay tuned for more dismantling and a chance for them to express their creativity with these pieces.
Assignment: Can you make a poem come to life? Check out some of the interpretations that students created.
In our preparation for Model UN we learned that a large portion of the population in Kenya eat a food called “CSB” which is a corn and soybean paste. One student looked up the recipe on YouTube, made the paste and brought it in to share. Descriptions included “sand”, “chalk”, and “the highest quality sawdust”.
It was quite a contrast to the Valentine’s treats we enjoyed later. It gave us all time to reflect on how lucky we are to have so much to eat.
