The education department at Project Wadi Attir has been more active than ever! Currently, an average of approximately 1,200 students visit the project every week. Education staff have been presenting the project’s unique pedagogical approach to visitors and educators, both around the project and at events and conferences throughout Israel. Here is a roundup of some educational activities at Project Wadi Attir during this past fall.

Educational staff from Project Wadi Attir attended an international education conference at nearby Kaye College in Be’er Sheva. Conference attendees included representatives from universities in Korea, Germany, Austria, Estonia, and Romania, as well as from universities throughout Israel. Project Wadi Attir staff gave a lecture about how to motivate young teachers using cultural and spiritual approaches to teaching, to help teachers bring about changes in their schools. This approach is based on The Lab’s five core principles of sustainability, which underlie all of the work done at Project Wadi Attir and the agricultural school. The conference included visits to many local schools, including the agricultural school at Project Wadi Attir.

Bedouin students from Hura and Jewish students from the community of Rishon Letzion came together to learn from one another at Project Wadi Attir’s agricultural school. The students were in the 4th through 6th grade, and spent the day learning about each others’ cultures, traditions, and villages. Together the students took a tour of Project Wadi Attir and took agriculture workshops.

And many more! We offer our congratulations to the education staff for all that they have achieved, and we look forward to seeing what exciting developments occur in the agricultural school in the coming year!
