Kenya Summer 2006

Strathmore University
June 1, 2006 to July 15, 2006

Overview

2006 AITI Kenya team was composed of a unique mix of MIT students: two graduate students in computer science, one from South Korea and one from Nigeria; an African American graduate student in urban planning; a Finnish junior majoring in Economics; and an Indian sophomore from Texas in neuroscience. Teaching at Strathmore University and Alliance Boys High School proved to be a challenging but rewarding experience as the team had a chance to immerse themselves in the educational culture of Kenya and interact and motivate the students by providing them with advice about pursuing education in the US. The comprehension level varied amongst the students at Strathmore and Alliance, which forced them to alter the curriculum and the teaching techniques to maximize the experiences of as many students as possible.
