La Selva

Here is a google maps image of La Selva Biological Preserve where we will be studying ecosystem monitoring and TEAM protocols in August.  The site is called Volcan Barva.  We were fortunate to win a competitive application process for ECO Classroom sponsored by Northrop Grumman. After assembling a team of 4 teachers from Brevard Public Schools, we decided on a group project idea and wrote a proposal as to how we apply what we would learn in Costa Rica to our own classrooms.  We chose to focus on camera traps.  Camera traps are motion activated devices which monitor animal activity remotely.  Our proposal was submitted along with applications, essays, and letters of recommendation.
