Welcome to the National Geographic version of STEMCIvics.
This edition tracks a team of eight STEM students from Ewing who enjoyed the adventure like no other.
As our small motorboat sailed to land, members of Amber Kerr near Gatun, one of several proud indigenous tribes known in Panama, made a stunning reception.
Dressed in a variety of colors, the villagers of Amber Kera played handmade flutes, drums and other amplifiers as this small group of students enjoyed the combination of culture.
STEMCivics students continued their schooling time as volunteers for Squads Abroad, a global activity that connects students with improving communities abroad, enjoying a culturally enriched journey, broadening their learning curve.
Squads Abroad, a student enterprise, emerged after the launch of Global Brigades, a global initiative in health and healthcare.
STEMCivics students have previously traveled to Costa Rica, Haiti, Peru, Honduras, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, and will travel to Greece next month.
School founders Lee Byron and Darianis Santana, dean of the 28th grade, encourage students to immerse themselves in countless learning opportunities.
Next, STEM students help lay a cement floor at an elementary school in El Limon.
