Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow (MEET) connects, educates, and empowers young Israeli and Palestinian leaders to create positive social change through technology and entrepreneurship.
Shankha and Kelsey are MIT undergraduate students spending the month of January 2017 in Jerusalem and Nazareth as computer science instructors for the MEET program.
Kelsey has been excited about teaching ever since she started helping her kindergarten teacher “grade” homework. All she really did was place stickers on pieces of paper, but nevertheless, she found it enjoyable. Since then, she has brought physics and chemistry demonstrations to elementary schools, posted educational videos online, and most recently helped develop and teach Code It, an outreach program that introduces middle school girls to computer science. She is beyond excited to join the MEET team this January, and she can’t wait to teach, as well as learn from the Israeli and Palestinian high school students!
