A hallmark of the K-12 Outreach Program is the Immersion Obstacle Course, where students complete prescribed tasks at simulated restaurants, stores, taxis, and other stations using only Chinese. Those who complete all stations in the obstacle course win a prize. Teachers may request stations that correspond with lessons they are teaching.

"Having Wayne State’s Confucius Institute visit my middle school classroom was great! They came prepared with stations where students could practice their Chinese with native speakers. The kids truly enjoyed themselves and as they were leaving the classroom asked when they could come back the following week! I look forward to them visiting my classroom again soon."

--Ms. Katie Van Gorder, Chinese Teacher, Chatterton Middle School
