Boston Public Schools
Cultural Exchange Program

 In 2011 we received funding from IBM to promote science and technology among school children in the U.S. AlliancExchange decided to host this pilot project in the City of Boston's school system, choosing the Warren-Prescott Elementary School in Charlestown. Partnering with OneWorld Classrooms (OWC) and utilizing OWC’s rainforest curriculum, the project integrated the science of the rainforest into the Warren-Prescott children’s science class. Children in Charlestown learned from Ecuador's rainforest children about the animals and plants, the food and the medicine, the water and the life of rainforest peoples. The technology elements were the use of Skype, the internet, and email to communicate between the school and the rainforest community.

During the 2012-13 school year, AlliancExchange will seek support from IBM and others to bring the Rainforest Curriculum to at least 2 new Boston schools and possibly a school in rural Maine. As part of the program this year, AlliancExchange will encourage a service project whereby the schools receiving grants help fund projects and programs in the Rainforest through school fundraisers.   

We are seeking expressions of interest from Science teachers, school administrators and others who would like to hear more about this project.  For those interested, the Rainforest Curriculum can also be integrated into language, the arts, and other classes.  For more information about the Rainforest Curriculum, check out:
