Environmental Studies major traveled to Bolivia with SCU's Global Fellow program to work with Boliva4Ward

Kimy Grandi Soriano spent six weeks in Cochabamba, Bolivia working for an organization called Bolivia4Ward, which helps the children of either local artisans or nearby orphanages with math and science, as both of these groups face marginalization especially in regards to the school system. She was in charge of planning and implementing the science curriculum for our students, who ranged from ages 6 to 18 years. Through a series of fun activities, she had the privilege of teaching these amazing children and teenagers about climate change, ocean acidification, and sustainable food systems.
