Iraqi students visit the University of Arkansas as part of the IYLEP program

Iraqi students visited the University of Arkansas as part of the IYLEP program! They took tours in the labs and classrooms, saw the biomedical robots and met with professors. The students are sent to varying locations across the United States; they stopped in Detroit before Northwest Arkansas and traveled to Washington, D.C., after they left. Besides learning more about the American culture and people, the program aims to encourage communication and increase their leadership skills toward making positive change in Iraq.
