GREENWICH - An educational-enrichment company based in Greenwich is working to change the way children learn by bringing classrooms together from all around the world.

Second- and third-graders at the Stanwich School have been working on a science experiment with their counterparts in Kosovo on ways to improve access to clean water.

It's part of a program called Level Up Village, which was co-founded by Neesha Rahim three years ago. Level Up uses webcams to connect kids from across the globe to collaborate on tackling real-world problems while breaking down cultural and economic barriers.

Currently, the Stanwich School has 90 classroom programs, pairing children in 14 states with kids in 20 countries.

Level Up's founders say their goal is to expand into as many schools in as many countries as possible.
