Have you ever thought of helping people with diabetes, hyperlipidemia, cystic fibrosis and anemia?
Have you participated in a joint project with American-Ukrainian students and teachers?
Students from Colorado Academy (Denver, USA) and Troyeshchyna Gymnasium (Kyiv, Ukraine) are working at Health Design Challengeproject (teachers: Bill Meyers, Sue Counterman (USA), Nataliya Byzova, Tetiana Pikush, Tetiana Savchenko (Ukraine).
We've got 20 teams of 4 students from both countries collaborating on our Gymnasium'sWikiTVplatform.
All the teams are challenged to design - a health article
- a meal plan,
- a prototype (device or test),
- a drug/medicine
- and demonstration
This project helps us better learn English and better use the computer.
It also helps us better learn the illness and how to deal with it.
So we are creating prototypes of gadgets and maybe they will help someone in the future.
We are pleased to communicate with American students.
We like them to answer our questions and we enjoy asking questions too.
We hope to get more information about their school and communicate with them in the future.
This project is an amazing experience in our life. With this project, we learn English, communicate with students from America, respond to their questions and ask them ours. In this project we are sharing comments. Each team is processing its material and doing its job. There is a lot of fun especially when we shoot videos for students from another country. We love this project very much and we like to work in it.
