Last week, our students collected poison dart frogs in the rainforests of Costa Rica. They learned about the importance of quality data collection in the scientific process.
Our student, Ana Paulina, wrote this blog post about what the days are like in this part of the Winterline Global Skills 9-month gap year program: coral reef science, rainforest science, and a day at the beach.
She learned the value of trying things she previously didn't like, but in a new context, and that science could actually be fun and enjoyable.
In her words, "I usually don’t like science, but learning it hands-on in the field is a totally different thing. I really enjoyed it."
