The students at Emrawah High School for Girls in Irbid, Jordan investigated the important issue of smoking in collaboration with Advanced Math & Science IV, New York, USA. Together they created an awareness campaign to encourage teenagers to think about their health and specifically to quit smoking. By making a power point presentation, doing an experiment in a laboratory and creating brochures and posters in two languages, the project addressed the impact of smoking in their community and globally.
“We decided to address the problem of cigarette smoking because it is a significant risk for young men and women.”
This student project was created as part of Campfire 2016, a youth virtual exchange program that connects students in the US, Jordan, and Pakistan. Campfire is run by Global Nomads Group. Campfire is made possible thanks to the generous support of our partners The Bezos Family Foundation, an award from the Aspen Institute Stevens Initiative with support from the U.S. Department of State and the Bezos Family Foundation, and additional support from PhotoWings, the U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, the U.S. Consulate in Lahore, Pakistan, and the Yahoo Employee Foundation.
