Appropedia is for collaborative solutions

Tell us a little about yourself.
So, I’m an instructor at Humble State University in far northern California. to make real projects all around the world
in summers we’re teaching in other countries
- Dominican Republic
- El Salvador
always with the same kind of intent which is to work together to find out what people need
not coming in with solutions, locally or internationally.
we don’t come in thinking know we know the answer we just come in with the excitement of working together.
We work with a lots of grade schools k-12
- garden infrastructure
Zane middle school
- rain water catchment
- edible landscaping
- solar power robot stations
- human powered sundials
- permeable pavement
all type of projects to raise the educational experience with the engagement as well as an environment that’s really nurturing
You know if students are catching their own rain and using that to grow their own food on campus they’re education is heightened.
I’m so excited this year to be somewhere were recycling is valued, recess is 4 times a day! There’s an outdoor classroom! My kids are big into legos so solar powered robots sounds great!
oh yeah so we pretty much just adapted that project
stay outside and be inspired by the sun!
You’re organization sounds like my ideal of the Peace Corps. My question with the Peaces Corps is why do they not send 6 people to one place instead of 1 person to 6 places?
I do international work because I love learning. I have a bigger impact in my own local community because I know where to find stuff and who’s gonna donate
