Last week nearly 500 students from Brooklyn STEAM and North View middle schools participated in the second annual Model United Nations Conference at Park Center Senior High School.

The middle school students represented their country’s national interests, discussed political, economic, social and environmental problems, negotiated their unique positions, and worked collaboratively to solve complex global issues. Park Center Senior High students served as mentors and coordinated the event.

Model United Nations coaches and Park Center teachers Sonia Nunez-Gibbs and Nancy Ziemer said that through this experience, students gained skills in critical reading, writing, research, public speaking, negotiation and many others areas.
