Dominican Republic, March 2018
Join STEAM Coordinator Andrea Tehan Carnes and IB Science Teacher Meghan Lena for a science-inspired trip to the Dominican Republic! We are working together with Rustic Pathways to offer a trip that celebrates science, language and culture, community service, and allows time for relaxation, exploration, and reflection. Students will work alongside health care professionals on high-impact public health projects across the Dominican Republic. We will identify the health needs of rural, urban, wealthy, and impoverished communities and help develop meaningful public service initiatives. Participants will earn their Wilderness First Aid certification and apply their new skills to helping communities in need during a service project in a local community. We will explore the capital city of Santo Domingo, the rural province of Hato Mayor, and the beaches of Samaná.
A more detailed itinerary can be found on our exclusive trip website: http://groupsarchive.

Trip cost: $2,395 + Airfare (estimated at around $600) — includes all local transportation, meals, etc.
Age requirement: students must be 14 years of age before our departure!
