Some of our community service collaborations and experiences!
Escuela ( Elementary school) Mariano Cortes
There was another great day in the schools in Turrialba. The national curriculum has an Art Festival day in which all the students have an opportunity to share their artistic talents (Dance, Song, Drawing etc.). Some of our NMSU students were able to be judges in the festival at the elementary school.
Luis, Ruben and Patrick were seated in with the students to watch the transfer of student leadership at La Suiza Colegio. The gym was packed and there was not much of a breeze blowing through the room. Regardless, the ceremony is really cool because the students repeat the the process of transferring power
from one student body group to another. Also, students from other schools (elementary to high school) come to view the transfer of power and eat lunch with the new student leaders.
While the some students were sweating it out in
the gym, Gabriela was sweating it out in the macadamia nut factory. She worked side by side with the employees and learned a ton about how industrial engineering impacts the workers' at a
Another great day of working for Poncho( Alfonso Garza) and Jody Easley was helping during a presentation of Tourism in Turrialba. Both of these students were able to help clean up and sort the trash produced from this event. They learned about recycling in Costa Rica and how it is connected to the status of hotels and tourism activities.
