About students  in one of our Egyptian STEM schools

Let Girls Learn

"Let Girls Learn" is a video about some of the girls from the second Egypt STEM school.  It was especially important to feature the work of the girls because prior to this time, opportunities for girls such as the public STEM boarding schools simply did not exist. Such schools broke the paradigm of thinking in Egypt about what girls could accomplish.

 

Short clips relating to our Egypt work and teaching and learning in general

Working in Egypt

I describe my work in Egypt and how it relates to my new book.

Taking the Lid Off Expectations

In our work in Egypt we took the lid off expectations of students and watched them achieve things we could never have imagined.

Why the Kids are Bored

Do kids have to be bored in school? Absolutely not. I give a few reasons why they are bored and describe ways of teaching and learning that engage and motivate students.

My Best Flight Home

In our book we describe our work on an amazing educational project in Cairo for 10 years. In this video I describe my very best flight home from Cairo.

The Speechless Dean

10th graders from the Egyptian Model STEM Schools became unwitting change agents for a university.

When Failing is Winning

When 10th graders first came to the Egyptian STEM Schools they were placed into groups and had to complete a design challenge. They learned from their failures and became transformed as learners.
