I found that intercultural collaboration over different time zones brings with it some challenges. For example, meeting can mostly only be done on the weekends.
I have done a research project with someone from Brasil in the 3rd year of high school, but he was in the Netherlands at the time.
Some students have a very international background and others don’t have one at all and the American students have a very clear political opinion whereas we don’t.
This is going to be a lot of fun to figure out.
