WVUA: WanderBUS Stops in Tuscaloosa, Celebrates German-American Friendship
March 27, 2019
The WanderbUS stopped in Tuscaloosa to educate students about the German-American friendship as it makes its way through the continental United States this year.
The WanderbUS hit the road in early March to educate students across the country about the German-American friendship. The bus has games for students, shows, videos and flyers about different German programs to help kids become more educated on German culture.
WanderbUS Project Manager Valerie Czok said they are excited to cover all 48 states this year and hopes to share a little bit of her knowledge on the similarities between Germany and America.
“We just want to promote the German language and culture and also show the similarities of our German-American friendship,” Czok said. “That Germany isn’t only the stereotypes you usually hear. That we have a lot in common and so we are just celebrating our togetherness.”
The WanderbUS is touring nearly 20,000 miles and will be on the road until Nov. 1.
