Welcome Guardians & Parents!
Thank you for considering enrolling your student in a Seeds of Change research immersion program in Costa Rica. Our goal is nothing short of providing a transformational experience in your child’s life that they treasure because it challenged them intellectually, nurtured their nascent interests in science and revealed a path forward rich with discovery and promise.
We are proud to say that our research immersion programs are unique in that they offer students the opportunity to develop their own original research experience that we mentor, but empower them to envision, design and implement in collaborative groups independently. Our Seeds of Change Lead Scientists and instructors are well equipped to provide the background information students need to trigger their curious natures and engage them in meaningful research endeavors.
We are deliberate and experienced in creating a learning environment that is safe for students to learn how to use and enhance their critical thinking skills. Our pedagogical refrain is: “Give students time to delve deeply, run into dead ends (fail), uncover ways to recover (grit and resilience) and use the power of multiple minds (collaborate) to put together a coherent and logical presentation of their work (communicate).”
