Since 2012, groups of Shanghai American School middle school students have taken four-week journeys to the village of Xizhou in Southwest China's Yunnan Province as participants in the school's Microcampus program. As representatives of their campuses, these students leave the "bubble" of their home city of 22 million people and become immersed in a new community of 2000 people, 2000 kilometers from home, at 2000 meters above sea level. The current group of students arrived in Xizhou on April 19, 2014. Guests from around the world are encouraged to follow their journey--reading, responding, and becoming a part of the learning adventure.
