Microcampus is an opportunity for a certain amount of students to go and experience a life out side the Shanghai "bubble". I am part of the R Group that is going on the November-December 2016 trip. Students who are selected to go on this trip go for 28 days to XiZhou and live with the Bai Minority people. During this trip each student is investigating one high personal interest topic. To choose this topic you must go through a process.

So far throughout the Microcampus process I have done my Project details and Phase 0. In Phase 0 we chose what our final topic or inquiry project would be. To do this we went through a long list and narrowed it down to the final one. Mine is textile production with photography also intertwined in it. In Phase 1 we posed questions that we have about our topics.

About This Learner

Hi, my name is Imani. I am 13 years old and this is my 2nd year at SAS. I was born in Michigan and I lived there my whole life until I moved to China 3 years ago. Some of the passions I have are playing soccer, dancing and traveling to many places around the world. One of my favorite places to go is Thailand. I was part of the Revival Microcampus group. I went to Microcampus on November 19, 2016 along with 9 other students from the Shanghai American School Pudong Campus. I enjoyed my time in XiZhou and learned many things about myself and the community that I was living in during the experience. This is definitely an experience to remember and I have nothing to regret by deciding to go on the trip. Thank you XiZhou and everyone who makes Microcampus possible for the chance of a lifetime. Definitely something that I will never forget.
