The WVU Tech International Student Organization (ISO) hosted a group of local girl scouts on Sunday, March 23 in celebration of World Thinking Day. The special day introduces young scouts to cultures from around the world and offers them a chance to earn a World Thinking Day badge.
Attendees of Sunday’s event played games and created construction paper passports. The scouts then used their passports to visit a series of tables representing specific countries. At each table, international students shared interesting facts about their respective nations and “stamped” the scouts’ passports with stickers.
More than 20 international WVU Tech students participated in the event, representing countries such as Brazil, Canada, Australia, Spain, England, the Virgin Islands, South Africa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Venezuela.
Sunday marked the second year the ISO has hosted World Thinking Day and Resident Director Michael Sheldon said that the program is an important opportunity for participating scouts and WVU Tech students alike.
“Hosting World Thinking Day on campus offers WVU Tech students a chance to share their stories and interact with the community,” he said. “The girl scouts have a great time and they get to learn about cultures they may not get to experience outside of this event.”
