U.S. PHD students teach in Kazakh schools
University Students from Boston teach at Nazarbayev Intellectual School in Karaganda. It is the first Kazakhstani educational institution that recruits the best students of Massachusetts Institute of Technology as part of Global Learning Lab program. They teach chemistry, physics and robotics in English at NIS. The school students are taught by new teaching methodology and also acquire English language skills.
SAMI KHAN, PHD STUDENT, MIT, USA:
The school is great, you know. We have a chance to go around and it seems like a very good facility. It seems it is very intellectually stimulating for students. So for me I want to bring some experience that I had in MIT to the students here. They are obviously very intelligent and they are very creative. The study a lot every day at chemistry but what I was interested in how do you apply.
