Subtropical Zone Ecology (US)

Subtropical Zone Ecology
Rising Grades 10–12
Vieques, Puerto Rico

Students take advantage of the unique ecological characteristic of Puerto Rico during this month-long course. The course has three components: a morning science class, a midday Spanish language and community engagement class, and an evening environmental literature class. In the science class, students study the terrestrial and marine ecologies of the island through hands-on experiential learning, field trips, and research. Students have the opportunity to interact with local community members both to enrich their Spanish-speaking skills and to experience and learn about Puerto Rican history and culture. Through the literature class, students read and discuss environmental literature and poetry and work on their writing skills. Maret awards one science credit for successful completion of the program.
