Here in Nicaragua, you’ll have freedom to roam and your mind will wander. This program offers the opportunity to explore an interdisciplinary topic of your own choosing, and the ability to investigate, analyze and integrate it into daily life. Your field lab is as varied and diverse as each new experience we encounter. Travel from the urban centers of Managua and León to the historic city of Granada. Then, get a more telling picture of Nicaragua’s story in San Juan del Sur and on Ometepe Island.
While our focus is on science, technology, engineering and math, it is impossible to avoid Nicaragua’s art, beauty, warmth and culture. From Spanish colonial towns, where each cobblestone street is filled with history, and to the beaches and swells of Nicaragua’s Pacific coast, we experience all sides of this amazing Central American country.
