Detailed program description
".. real learning and eye-opening experience..."
"By going through the program, I feel as though I am more equipped to do these types of design projects."
"I liked the program's emphasis on work rather than tourism."
"When we worked with the [Portobelo] students and when I saw the kids think critically about solving problems, I was really impressed. The guy in my group thought about a design that others didn't think of instead of copying other groups. It made me realize that these students might have better capabilities of innovating than some students in the US but they just don't have the opportunity and channels to do so."
