This summer, a delegation of 11 North Carolina teachers and education leaders traveled to India to learn about the education system and to explore best practices in STEM education. The program was sponsored by Burroughs Wellcome Fund in partnership with the University of North Carolina and Go Global NC.

One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to the Taj Mahal and Agra Fort. Experience the trip in 360 using the videos below. If you have a VR headset (like a Google Cardboard headset), try it with these! (Detailed directions below).
