Climate change expedition to Costa Rica


Climb a volcano, hike in a rainforest, and search for monkeys at the beach — the expedition itinerary features the essential highlights of Costa Rica while integrating The GLOBE Program protocols, receiving GLOBE certification (if needed) within climate change and educational exchange in the tropics. We begin in the lush lowland rainforest of Selva Verde, continue to Arenal Volcano to discover geological history, and witness the unique coastal biodiversity inhabiting Manuel Antonio National Park. Plus, we’ll enjoy opportunities for cultural exchange with the local communities throughout our experience.

The program goals will be to

  • Increase understanding and awareness of climate, including the broad and integrative nature of climate, the role of climate in shaping community, and the difference between climate and weather.
  • Increase understanding of and ability to conduct science research focused on climate.
  • Improve student awareness through collaborations among students, teachers, and scientists that are focused on understanding the Earth as a system.
