COA students have lunch with CINVESTAV researchers in the "ejido" of Yaxcaba as part of a day long field trip. Students and faculty toured the experimental "milpas", where alternative crop techniques were being studied. Later several students returned to the site to implement 2 week long research for their interdisciplinary final projects.

This is the third consecutive year of College of the Atlantic's winter term in Merida, Yucatan. Each year several 12 to 18 students spend 10 weeks experiencing the rich culture, language, and history of Mexico while taking three related courses from COA faculty and an immersion Spanish course from the Universidad Autonoma de Yucatan. In addition to taking courses and living with Yucatecan families in Mérida, students also travel throughout the peninsula on short guided field trips, complete ten days of independent research on a final interdisciplinary project, and make an oral presentation to faculty and fellow students. The term is currently in progress, so your're invited to follow the links above for the latest news and activities.
