Global STEM Series field trip to Costa Rica

On this 11-day expedition, explore glorious national parks and private reserves and learn from the naturalists and conservationists who are stewards of this remarkable realm. Join your peers in the field and learn about ongoing research and conservation efforts. Costa Rica offers a discovery in science education through a comprehensive exploration of the country.
Energy educators will be especially interested in this part: Discuss real-world scientific dilemmas, spanning hydro-electric dam impacts to the effects of climate change in tropical systems and biodiversity management.
