Story

The Architects: Global Conflict: Allan D, Grant E

The Problem

Our subject matter expert, Mark Adams, the educational director of Truman Library, challenged us to determine whether or not increasing global awareness leads to an increase in global conflict.

The Solution

We researched the United States' role in causing the current Ukranian war and we are creating a website that compares and contrasts our relations with Russia since WWI. We are also making a series of maps that will show the Russian boundaries and how over time, they went from allies to enemies.

Target Market

Societal Impact

Our audience will learn about the relationship between Russia and the US over the years.

Next Steps

We still need to complete the website.

Reflection

We've worked really well together. WE've been challenged with only having two people on our team and we've challenged ourselves to do more work.
