PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) -- A group of kids from Iraq are on a really long field trip this month, visiting Washington State University.

The fourth and fifth-grade students from Knowledge Private School in Duhok, Iraq, start their official visit on Friday. During the next five days, they will make stops at the WSU Pullman and Spokane campuses.

They'll check out a medical lab, participate in a DNA lab exercise, and on Monday will visit school children their own age in summer school at Lincoln Heights Elementary.
