Student trip to Panama in plans for next spring break

Markus Van Meter gave Ouray School Board members an idea of what students will do on a spring break trip to Panama in 2020 at the board’s meeting on Monday. Van Meter recently returned from Panama where he got to experience firsthand an “abbreviated version of what students would do.”
Van Meter is the director of the school’s STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program.
Next year, incoming freshmen will take a six-day trip. They will study with Smithsonian scientists at a research center that Van Meter said was once a military base the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency used for spying on Russian submarines.
Students will have a day of snorkeling to collect data followed by hands-on experience in the lab and classroom research on how the wetlands and economy of the region are affected by the canal.
