Project Title: Teaching my classmate to ski

Name: Nikita Istratov

Age: 8-12yrs

Rank: Advanced

Program: Fusion

Explain This Project? What Is It Exactly?: Over the past several years, I have been taking ski education from 2 very experienced ski coaches. One of my classmates believed that he is a good skier. Last season we had an opportunity to go skiing together. Once we got on the slope, he was low-level intermediate. I apprehended that and volunteered to teach him and give tips. I taught him for about 4 hours, gave him drills to work on, and he got much better. New winter ski season is approaching, and I have been watching videos and studying to be able to teach him further and turn him into a much greater skier.

How many Projects Have You Done?: I'm reporting 3, I taught stop-motion animation, I'm teaching skiing, and I'm going to read in Russian to my Grandma.

What Impact Did This Project Have On Our Community?: I'm sharing my knowledge of arts and sports with other people, and am helping a visually impaired person.

Why Do You Aim High?: I learned certain valuable skills, and feel it is enjoyable to share this knowledge and help other people. It helps other people to become more skillful and makes this world a better place.
