On Tuesday, April 17, SQCC hosted 25 teachers from Close Up Washington D.C. Teachers toured the cultural exhibition and interacted with the aflaj (irrigation display), and learned about Omani forts, handcrafts, and clothing. Teachers also explored the SQCC library and learned about SQCC's various educational and scholarship programs.

Thereafter, teachers listened to a presentation focused Oman’s culture, people, history, and geography. The presentation included an introduction to SQCC's Indian Ocean in World History (IOWH), a friendly effective and engaging resource for educators and students on the role of the Indian Ocean in world history. The website’s content adheres to the common core curricula goals set by the U.S. Department of Education for use in American classrooms.
