Abstract

Currently, Embry-Riddle students not in a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) field do not have the opportunity to use the scientific method and see real world applications. Therefore, we are purpose to send a group of seven students to Costa Rica on an alternative spring break trip to help with sea turtle research. The trip will be broken into three major learning objectives: expose students to the scientific method, environmentalism/conservation, and volunteerism. Students will be expected to attend pre-trip workshops on the learning objectives and apply them to their trip through journaling. This opportunity will give students exposure to the research methodology and a chance to see how individual’s acts can have a positive impact on the world in which they live.
