Immersive Learning

This summer I had the opportunity to go on my second study abroad trip. I traveled to Belize with a small group of students, much different than my first study abroad where I went alone. We lived on a private island for a week, where we were 2 hours away from the mainland, had zero wifi, no hot water, and lived off power from a generator. Although it sounds like it would be terrible, it was by far the best part of the trip. We did conservation research diving while we were there. Three dives a day recording coral types, fish types, and conch and lobster size. We had three presentations a day that went over the importance of these conservation practices. I learned so much on this study abroad, more than I would have been able to if I was sitting in a classroom.
