Spring Break 2018
This past spring break, our students traveled to the country of Panama to get an immersive educational experience regarding the agricultural issues the country is facing. While in the country, our students observed the agricultural operations there such as a pineapple farm and an organic chicken farm. They also spent part of their time checking out the history and culture of Panama, including historical sites like the Panama Canal.
For more information about their adventures in Panama, please check out their daily updates!
