Here is another TED talk I’d encourage you to watch. Richard Turere is a young man from Nairobi who, while woking on his father’s farm caring for the cattle, came up with an invention to keep the lions away. As he says, a way to ‘protect the lions and protect the cattle’.
This is an incredible story well worth watching from the introductory documentary to the TED interview with Richard. I’m sure you will be inspired by what can be achieved by passionate young adolescents.
Will you view your students differently now you have watched this?
