Each of The Experiment’s summer 2014 programs has their own blog, where our leaders and experimenters are posting stories and photographs from their travels. Click on a blog link on this page to join the adventure, http://www.experimentinternational.org/read-our-blogs/.
The Experiment in International Living has been offering immersive experiential learning programs abroad since 1932. Today, The Experiment offers summer programs for high school students in Europe, the Americas, Africa, and Asia and the Pacific. Students are challenged to explore the host country through hands-on experiences in local communities and through the lens of a specific theme, including: the arts, the environment, peace, politics, and human rights, sustainability and food systems, and cultural discovery.
This summer 2014, 480 Experimenters will travel to 20 countries worldwide, and participate in 31 different programs. Experimenters represented more than 20 different nationalities. Our 2014 Experimenters came from:
• 36 US states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico
• 12 countries including: Canada, China, Ecuador, Germany, Israel, Kenya, South Africa, Spain, Thailand, Uganda, USA and the United Kingdom.
Experimenters played more than 20 different sports, more than 9 types of musical instruments, and were involved in over 175 student clubs and activities.
During the summer, Experimenters spoke, in addition to English, Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin), French, German, Italian, Japanese, Kiswahili, Korean, Arabic, Spanish, and Thai.
