Using a video game, a set of blueprints and a high level of motivation, Zaki created an absolutely stunning model that we know you will love. In this video podcast, Zaki and Pat Kyle, the school librarian, discuss this awesome project, complete with a walk through of the library. At the conclusion of the podcast, we also hear from Neil MacDonald of the Washington International School as he gives his account of how this project fits into the school’s International Baccalaureate program.
