Trojan in Auroville
A computer virus? A PC worm?? Not, this time real Trojan walked the soil of Auroville! The 6th grade students of Transition School performed one of the most famous events of the Greek mythology, the Trojan war.

This choice made accessible the roots of the western culture to kids and teenagers. May be not a very classical interpretation but for sure we all had fun. Read more
