An All-Girls Global STEAM Collaboration

Though they live on different continents, students at St. Joseph’s Academy in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and a group of girls at Ekalavya School in Bangalore, India, were partners this fall in LUV’s Global Inventors course. Together, they studied electricity, computer aided design (CAD) and 3D printing, while learning about each other’s daily lives and cultures via video message exchange. One girl at each end of the partnership reflected on the experience.

Our 8th graders sent video introductions to an all-girls school in Uganda yesterday. Let us just let the reality of that settle in for a moment.
