English Language Fellow brings the WWII Museum of New Orleans to the Karaganda American Corner

In collaboration with the WWII Museum of New Orleans, Fellow Taryn A. U’Halie introduced a service-learning project called “Get in the Scrap” to her host town of Karaganda, Kazakhstan. This initiative focuses on American history and science education through project learning that’s centered around recycling and energy conservation. The #getinthescrap program teaches participants about how the United States motivated young students to help the scrapping effort during WWII.

The project also helped attendees understand STEM concepts. Participants learned how to conduct energy audits and also studied the harmful effects that landfills can have on the environment. Students used social media to share what they had learned from the event in the hopes that the Karaganda community will become more engaged in recycling and energy conservation.
