Chicago Educators Visit Morocco

Authored by Lisa Roberts, STEAMuseum Project Director and Co-Chair of the Casablanca Committee of Chicago Sister Cities International

In April 2017, Lisa Roberts and Julie Stagliano, Director and Senior Advisor to the STEAMuseum respectively, traveled to Casablanca to visit STEAMuseum classrooms and observe the project in action.

"It was a lovely and meaningful welcome which reinforced the importance of our work connecting people across cultures."

One of the ways we’re trying to deepen those connections in our project is by forming small exhibit teams, composed of three students from Chicago and three students from Casablanca. Each team has had a chance to meet and have a short chat via video conference; and they now have their own team thread on the forum where they will communicate only with one another. Many have invited one another to their social media accounts, and we are hoping that these exchanges will lead to more personalized interactions and relationships.
