The Columbus School of Chinese is excited to begin our China Study Abroad Program to Hefei, China, June 3-16, 2015, in partnership with the Confucius Institute at the East Central Ohio Educational Services Center.
Over the course of this two-week program, CSC President Chris Stellato, VP Donny Newman and instructor Jianfen Wang will lead local high school students through a tour of Shanghai, Nanjing and Columbus Sister City, Hefei.
The program is specifically focused on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). In China, each student will conduct research on a STEM-related research question they have developed according to their own personal interests in preparation for the trip. Participants will visit and interact with various businesses, government bodies and educational institutions, including global market research company Ipsos, international gaming company Reality Squared Games, and cutting edge educational software company iFlytek.
We are also proud to be collaborating closely with our partner Hefei University. While in Hefei, program participants will attend Chinese language and culture classes, work with local university peer mentors and live on campus in Hefei University’s international student dormitories.
We are greatly looking forward to the trip and to many more CSC study abroad programs to come!
