Managing and surviving transformations to become stronger and wiser world citizens.

Title

Transformations


Starting Point

What are the forces that make us transform from one thing to another? As third culture students we are often in frequent states of transition but how do these transformations differ from those experienced by other young people? Transformation can be instigated internally but also thrust upon us externally. It can be gradual or happen in an instant, be resisted and unwanted even. Transformation can be wished for and then not happen. What are the forces of transformation and how do we manage them in a rapidly evolving world? How do we survive them?


Out & About

A trip to the National Science Museum to explore the concept of transformations throughout history and across contexts.
