Water Crisis in Cape Town- Beyond the Classroom
Unit: Thirsty World
Post session task: Writing- Describing a line graph
Grade 8 students connected with an educator in Cape Town to learn more about the water crisis in the city. This was in connection with their current unit of study; Thirsty World.
A group discussion on shortage of water was followed by a web-search on what lead to the current crisis in Cape Town. This was supported by more information from an educator who discussed the current situation on ground.
The new word/idea that students got to know about was -grey water. They are currently working on a line graph on the water levels in a major reservoir in Cape Town.
As a contribution of the computer science department in making the education process more enjoyable and attractive to the students, the computer science club was established at the Ras Al-Khaimah campus.
It will offer many activities, including training students in computer programming, preparing students to participate in local and international competitions, as well as some recreational activities.
