Haitian teachers at Lekol [Eng:school] Harvey feeling inspired and excited to share with their students the wonders and challenges within STEM after a two-day training in August 2018. Instructors first explored static electricity with their students and after that lesson, students and teachers alike shared their excitement for STEM. The ‘hands-on, minds-on’ learning concept means that while working on STEM, teachers must engage the student in a process of higher level thinking.
LET’S GO encourages questions such as: why certain results are different or what would happen if I did something different. This style of learning leads students to be curious about their local environment as well as thinking about broader concepts.
Helping Haitian Angels, the organization that runs the local school in Haiti, stated, “Your (LET’S GO) teaching methods for STEM has definitely changed the way our teachers are teaching”. We the ripple effect that this positive style of learning will have on the students!
