Mainly these students are winners of Maths and Physics Olympiads

Teachers of different subjects were invited to teach summer camp students. But instead of typical school subjects we were supposed to involve them into creative activities.








The Russian  students decided to tell  Pakistani students about famous Russian folk tales characters.
They drew pictures of the famous Russian folk tales heroes....

<<"That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind" Neil Armstrong said when he landed on the moon. Same goes with this connection, maybe a small step for us, but a giant leap for our students.>> 
Saleem, I completely agree with you.

Even when our students are on their long summer break there are amazing ways to teach them 21st century skills.
