Exchange program with Jain International School in Nagpur - The youth synergy project.
In December 2017, 20 students and two teachers visited Jain International school in Nagpur, India. The purpose of the exchange program was to challenge our students and make them reflect on other cultures and their own. It was about being out of their comfort zones and making connections with teenagers in a different part of the world. India is a unique experience and fast moving in terms of globalization. Our students studied globalization and the global market and visited companies in different stages of their development, from pottery-making in a small village to Haldiram's factory and Tata.
In the spring 2018, KIS hosted 20 Indian students and two teachers here in Kongsberg for two weeks. The students learned about Kongsberg, its history and traditions, and studied connections between technology companies in Kongsberg and India. They visited the silver mines and Bergverksmuseet, Krona and USN, and technology companies in Kongsberg.
