Week Without Walls (Oct. 9 – 13)

Photos by Rob Martin

Week Without Walls in Panchgani was great! Here are a few photos I took during the trip. Your teachers, along with the Utsaah staff, will be creating a Google folder to add all of our photos. We got very lucky with the weather and it did not rain as much as we thought it might. I enjoyed the hike and the village visit, in particular. The opportunity to interview people in the small village about their lifestyle, local economy, health care, infrastructure, and educational opportunities was a great learning experience. You will find connections between this activity and what we will do for one of the footstep projects for Out of Eden Learn. 

Enjoy your fall vacation, whether you are traveling or staying in Chennai. See you in class on Monday, October 23 (2G day).

Week Without Walls in Yelagiri was a learning experience for everyone. We saw many examples of students modeling the 4C’s of AISC’s mission statement and we also saw good team work and collaboration on display. What did you like or dislike about the three days in Yelagiri?
