Education is the best investment.

Shirin Haddadin, a grade 6 science teacher at Beebe Middle School in Malden, MA and Ayman Halaseh, a Professional Civil Engineer at CDM Smith in Boston, MA and a Tufts Alumni. They are both from Jordan and speak Arabic. Last year they started STEM education for refugees’ project at Zaatari refugee camp, the largest refugee camp for Syrian Refugees in the world. Our project objectives were:

 1) Build classroom capacity by providing science teachers with science education supplies.

2) Build teachers capacity by conducting a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) workshop to encourage the science teachers to include this in their classrooms.

3) Finally, and the most rewarding objective, is to run a STEM day with the students and introduce them to the beauty of science and engineering.

The project was very successful and recognized by many organizations and individuals. We have formed an advisory committee, received assistance from Engineering In Elementary organization (EIE) at Museum of Science (MoS) and Center of Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) at Tufts University. We also are working with design squad at WGBH.

The aim for 2018 is to expand the project and to build classroom and teachers’ capacity in two camps; Zaatari and Azraq refugee camps with the assistance of Relief International RI and UNICEF. If you would like to learn more about the project, see photos and video from last year’s trip, or make a contribution, please visit our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/STEM4Refugees/

If you can give $500, if you can give $100, if you can give $50, if you can give $10, please do -- it will cost $20,000 to equip 6 labs in two refugee camps to empower science teachers with essential tools to teach. Every donation will make a difference to this group of families and children living in the refugee camp. 
All help is greatly appreciated, and updates will be posted once this project goes ahead.
