Professors Create Seesaw Across U.S.-Mexico Border so Kids Can All Play

A border wall may separate the U.S. and Mexico, but it can’t stop American and Mexican kids from playing together.

Two college professors from California had an idea to peacefully protest the border wall by designing seesaws that could be connected to the slotted wall and allow kids on both sides of the border to play.

 

Ronald Rael from the University of California, Berkeley and Virginia San Fratello of San Jose State actually came up with the idea for a “Teeter-totter Wall” about 10 years ago and drew up the design. But it wasn't until Monday in New Mexico that they actually brought the idea to life.

Professor Rael said, "The wall became a literal fulcrum for U.S. – Mexico relations and children and adults were connected in meaningful ways on both sides with the recognition that the actions that take place on one side have a direct consequence on the other side."

Rael shared a videoof the kids playing on Instagram. (People)
