Students went with their host families over the weekend and had the chance to do many different things. Some of our students were able to get-together to celebrate Chad's birthday on Sunday.
All students arrived back safe and sound to the campus at 8pm on Monday evening. Some were tired but all were sharing stories of their adventures. Their goal tonight is to pack for the plane ride to Shanghai on Tuesday and get a good night sleep.
Teachers: spent the weekend exploring the city and its many markets. They had the chance to meet with other teachers from around the world, who teach on the Haidian campus and hear what they have to say out the education system in the school and worldwide.
Administrators: we were taken on an overnight excursion to another city to visit the Science, Technology Engineering, Arts,Math (STEAM) district of China. This area is a city unto itself for the development of new therioes and ideas. As a city it was 180 degree opposite of Beijing and its old world ideals. Very modernistic. It was called the Huairou District.
