We are approaching our travel date for Rwanda and it is crunch time for lesson plans and last minute details.  This week we are having a marathon of meetings, finalizing lesson plans as well as getting together our supplies for the trip.

Currently most of us are busy, as it is finals week here at Carnegie Mellon University. However our dedication to the team and the project can be shown through our 11pm meetings and our enthusiasm for our lessons! Here is a sneak peak :

Record with Ariel, Urna, and Waleed

Experience classic fables re-told by the children of Kagugu through different methods of expression all recorded and showcases on the activity Record in their XOs.

Tam-Tam with Amy, Abhay, and Jim

A laptop orchestra which incorporates both sounds and visuals in their original compositions through african and international instruments on the activity Tam-Tam in the XOs.

Scratch with Josh, Melvin, Vishal, and Sruthi

The children will construct a virtual storytelling world with characters focusing on relationships and conflict resolutions through the activity Scratch in their XOs.

And much more!
