Costa Rica STEM Semester
Coming Fall 2020
Welcome to Costa Rica
Verto’s STEM semester spends 13 weeks in Costa Rica, where students take core STEM courses while experiencing the rich cultural and environmental diversity of the country. You will live in three different communities over the course of the semester in order to compare and contrast different lifestyles and ecosystems within Costa Rica. Students put their STEM courses to practical use in helping to design and implement small-scale construction and engineering projects to benefit local communities.
Highlights include a Rafting Trip on the Pacuare River, surfing weekend on the Pacific Coast and community service project supporting construction and infrastructure in underserved rural schools
