The delegation toured the Dujiangyan Irrigation Project. The irrigation system began in 3rd century B.C. and continues to work today, leading it to be named a UNESCO World Heritage site for its innovative design and role in the advances of ancient China.
School visits to Dujiangyan schools took place in the afternoon. First was Dujiangyan Vocational School. Vocational education has three levels: junior secondary, senior secondary, and tertiary. More than 11 million students attend these schools each year, helping China produce a skilled workforce.

We participated in morning exercise, and were entertained by countless traditional performances including tea ceremony, music, dance, Tai Chi, crafts, and Kung Fu. 2000 year old water irrigation site still functioning today! #LacyChina2018 #GlobalTeachers @GoGlobalNC @BusickLacy pic.twitter.com/Gq4PwdgRLW
