This week students from the Alto San Luis elementary school (Escuela de los Altos de San Luis) invited the community to a special event full of performances and projects. The girls wore long, colorful skirts to perform traditional Costa Rican dances while the boys wore hats and handkerchiefs. The girls also performed a more modern dance.
The students presented their science projects as well. Experiments ranged from a demonstration of surface tension to research on micro-organisms in the soil.
Several UGA Costa Rica naturalists had the privilege of serving as judges and evaluated the performances and presentations of the students. The school is just down the road from the UGA Costa Rica campus.
