Middle School works with students in Nicaragua to build an alternative energy website
Level Up Village
Middle School students have started working on an 8-week program with students in Nicaragua to build websites with information about alternative energy sources and climate change. Level Up Village, a company that helps children partner with students from schools in over 20 countries, hosts this course, called “Global Web Designers.” Students have exchanged video messages with students at a school in Nicaragua and they are now learning basic web design coding that they will put to use to build a website with their partner students. Students are excited to hear from similarly-aged students in another country and to use their Spanish as part of their communication. This program makes the world a little “smaller” and has allowed Princeton Montessori School students to see how adolescents in Central America are both different from and similar to themselves.
