In the summer of 2019, Hauwa Ibrahim, J.D., S.J.D., M.L., and LaShawnda Lindsay-Dennis, Ph.D., collaborated with students from the University of Rome to design and teach a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) summer program for students in Nigeria. This collaborative effort included the use of the STEMkit, curriculum designed by Wellesley College students under the leadership of Wendy Robeson, Ed.D., and contributions from Corinne Cressman, Ph.D., of Nashoba Regional High school. During this program, Hauwa and LaShawnda will discuss their journey in designing and implementing the program in diverse Nigerian contexts.
