Crystal Mountain School 2018 Fellows

Our flagship fellowship program is off to a great start. Five enthusiastic teacher-musicians embarked today (April 10) on their 5 day journey to Crystal Mountain School with school and Vision Dolpo staff.

The fellows will be leading  a lot of exciting new activities at the school, including a comprehensive music program for our young students and a truly innovative science program designed to empower students to use local resources, plastic and other waste, and electronic and other hardware equipments to build DIY vacuum cleaners, toy cars and drones, and so much more!

Meet our first ever cohort of Crystal Mountain School Fellows

 

Here’s what the fellows have to say!

We plan to integrate ECA activities with the curriculum. The teaching method will be completely radical; however, theory parts and the curriculum of Nepal government will be covered holistically. We plan to provide the student with psychosomatic experience of learning. We will also be focusing on building interpersonal communication skills (English and Nepali) among the students. And to achieve our objectives we will be involving the students in :

  • Designing and conducting various DIY projects
  • Music Classes
  • Theatrical Performances
  • Experimenting with non musical instruments in creating music
  • Ensemble Classes
  • Science experiments
  • Using E-paath and E-pustakalaya designed by OLE Nepal for learning and teaching
  • Using Raspberry Pi  for graphical and musical programming
