From Italy to France, Vietnam, and Japan this summer has seen many learning opportunities for our Seawolves. Continuing the theme of summer learning, ten Tabor students traveled to Costa Rica for an intensive scientific immersion experience with the Seeds of Change organization.
The excited travelers left for Costa Rica on July 30th and immediately introduced themselves to the professional university researchers with whom they would be working side-by-side. Wasting no time, the group jumped into their research projects, such as:
How does the amount of polysaccharides and nitrogen affect the growth rate of the fungus garden?
Which stage, if any, of the Caligo butterfly life cycle, contains the pathogen Bacillus thuringiensis?
Would worker ants accept larvae from other colonies without their queen and broods?
We look forward to welcoming the group home tonight after their educational adventure abroad and we also look forward to hearing more about their experiences when school starts up again in just a few weeks!
With the persistence of environmental change, people across the world are experimenting daily with different adaptive methods on the ground. With support from National Geographic and The Redford Center, filmmaker Alizé Carrère has been documenting innovative human adaptations in places such as Madagascar, Bangladesh, Vanuatu, Norway and the United States. From floating farms in Bangladesh to ice pyramids in the Himalayas, these stories reveal incredible ingenuity and resourcefulness in the face of environmental adversity. Alizé shares her experiences from the field looking at these unique examples of human adaptation, reminding us of the most important trait that has allowed for our continued survival on earth.
