From Maney Online:

As part of a collaborative educational effort between Lincoln Park Zoo and the National Museum of Niger, students designed their own animal behavior research projects, collected data, and presented their results in their home country and to their peers via Skype. An article by Gillespie and Melber (2014) summarizes the impact of the project on students and the teachers. In addition to an increase in knowledge of wildlife in their own country and in their partner community, there were also attitudinal changes including an increased cultural understanding. This article emphasizes how informal learning centers can develop educational programs that affect learners around the world. Contact Bryn Pernot for a copy of the full manuscript.
