MESĀ 627. Exploration Science Field Studies. 3 Credit Hours.

Exploration Field Studies provides students with an opportunity to gain field experience by being part of an expedition team that is tasked with observing, documenting and communicating discovery, which are the hallmarks of exploration. Students will be tasked with systematically collecting data and media while learning to travel and work as a group in various environments on the island of Eleuthera over theweek of spring break. The trip explores the island from the very northern tip to the southern tip in a very intensive, hands-on way. We are based out of the Cape Eleuthera Institute, whom we contract with for room, board and services. We spend several days camping in the field. In addition to the week, students meet several times before and after during the semester to work on logistics, background research and presentations of materials.
