Sparking STEM

#BWFGlobal India

Sustainability and conservation in India

Editor's note: In August 2017, a delegation of 11 North Carolina teachers and education leaders traveled to India to learn about India's education system, economic development, and STEM education. Thanks to Burroughs Wellcome Fund in partnership with the University of North Carolina and Go Global NC, they were able to visit public and private schools, universities, businesses, and nonprofits from Bangalore to Delhi. This week we are looking back on the trip and offering reflections and lessons learned.
