Booker T. Washington High School recently hosted a group of nearly 50 students from Zimbabwe as part of a 10-day international collaborative learning project.
The collaborative between Rydings College in Zimbabwe and Washington High School primarily was focused on science and technology and included visits to Space Center Houston and the University of Houston. Students hoped to bring back ideas on how to make wind turbines and processes for water purification.
Students from both schools plan to keep in touch and continue their collaboration. Washington students are even planning to visit the Zimbabwe school in November to learn about the progress being made.
