Global Events

In my life, I’ve been lucky enough to be part of a few global events. Such as the World’s Math Day, The Haiyan Relief Effort and a project that was not exactly global, called the Bali Service Learning Project. In this post, I will describe these three events.

On the World’s Math Day, I did challenges against players from all over the world! From people in Laos to Latvia, from China to Chad, we all did challenges on the World’s Math Day website. I won around 72 rounds against kids younger, and older than me. I almost won every round I did because they were simple problem! I really suggest you check out the website. Here is the link for World’s Education Games, which includes similar games for other subjects:

For the Haiyan Relief Effort, I participated in a Walk-A-Thon. Where people donated at least 10 RMB for people in our school to walk laps in the school sports field, the ECLC department also baked cookies and sold artwork for the disastrous typhoon that ruined many lives. I have a blog post about the Walk-A-Thon, and for the Bali Service Learning Project, which I will talk about now!

The Bali Service Learning Project was a series of assignments from our teachers, to make items to help children in Bali that only go to school once every week. I made sets of videos with me showing a picture and asking what it showed. I then told the answer. I hope the children in Bali are using those sets, but I don’t know if they are.

Well, that’s it for this post. I hope you’ve enjoyed it!
