Program Overview

India, Science Education and Service

Join us as we delve deep into India’s culture and history while also undertaking education-based service projects in Wai, India and communities in the surrounding rural area. Salt Lake Community College is partnering with Westminster to offer this trip.

You will explore what it means to be a true citizen of the world and gain a better perspective of the educational needs in rural India, as well as how these are rapidly changing due to India’s high tech boom. You and your fellow students will develop a science module using inquiry-based teaching techniques, then take this to India where you will work with local teachers to implement and teach the lessons in primary schools, secondary schools, or a school for students with special needs.

Central to this course is cultural immersion in India’s rich heritage, which you will experience by living and working side-by-side with your Indian counterparts and exploring the rich history of Wai, where beautiful temples along the Krishna River exist alongside slums where poor Indians live with limited access to quality education and other services. We’ll be working with the enthusiastic students there to help address some of the challenges these communities face as they share their incredible culture and traditions with us.
