Providence Academy is taking high school students to Costa Rica to conduct novel scientific research from June 21-July 1, 2024.  The research site is two hours outside of Liberia, Costa Rica. While at this site (8 days), students will be immersed in a tropical rainforest  research program where they will develop their own research questions and experiments focusing on leaf  cutter ants and butterfly caterpillar instars. After their tropical field research project is complete, students  will travel to Playa Junquillal on the Pacific coast (2 days). Here students will participate in a sea turtle workshop, conduct sea turtle nesting patrols and a beginner surf lesson if conditions are good!  Dr. Yvonne Boldt and Mr. Adam Schmalzbauer are your PA leaders on this adventure!
