Project Report | Jul 6, 2021
New Cohorts

By Lev Horodyskyj | Founder

Greetings all,

I hope you are having an enjoyable summer.  This spring, we welcomed about a dozen new Indonesian students in the spring 2021 cohort for Greenworks, working with US and Brazilian students together in an environmental science and public policy curriculum and role-playing game.  Unfortunately, only one group successfully completed.  We're working with our in-country facilitators to better understand the sources of difficulty in completion.  One thing that has become clear from early discussions is that an "active learning" classroom, where students interact with each other and with teachers, is a new concept for everyone involved.  As a result, we are working this summer to develop a new curriculum for teachers, to help them both learn active learning classroom techniques and how to support students engaged in an active learning classroom setting.  We expect to debut this curriculum, as well as a revamped Greenworks curriculum for students, this fall.

Unfortunately, student projects supported by your donations are currently paused because of a surge in COVID cases in Indonesia.  Our thoughts and well-wishes are with our Indonesian colleagues as they battle this scourge of a disease.

During this pause, we are working with student volunteers at Science Voices to develop a new digital infrastructure for student projects to better manage them and help our students think through the entire lifecycle of their projects.  This will help ensure that students develop good project management skills and the skills necessary to utilize your donations effectively as they implement successful community projects.

As always, thank you for supporting this project and our students in Indonesia!

Lev
