It's February and that means the end of the dry season here in Uganda...and the beginning of the school year! The Ugandan academic year begins in February, with the first of three terms. Right along with the students, Yiya is officially back in schools!
This past week the Yiya lessons officially kicked off, with Yiya staff and teachers running a talkshow-style speaking panel in all Yiya classrooms, where students discussed the effects of climate change on their local community. They debated possible solutions to mitigate the effects of human activity on the environment and took questions from peers in their TV talkshow. This lesson sets the stage for the importance of the gravity lights technology. Next week students will dive into the science of gear ratios and pulley systems!
