Sponsored by Triway International Group, the program begins with a visit to the Beijing No. 18 Middle School, Monday, July 10, and concludes with a visit to Yuhuatai Senior High School on Tuesday, July 18.

Program topics will include: 
• Current and potential programs between China and the U.S.;
• STEM education;
• AASA’s National Superintendent Certification program;
• AASA’s National Conference on Education;
• School leadership; and

The Chinese delegation will also visit the high school affiliated with Renmin University of China, Beijing Institute of Education, Beijing Shunyi Niulanshan First Secondary School, the China Education Association for International Exchange and the Shanghai STEM+ Research Institute.
