Costa Rica
Costa Rica Educator Course


  • Work with leatherback sea turtles

  • Study tropical ecology

  • Connect and collaborate with a community of peers


Join fellow educators on a 7-day professional development course in the rainforests of Costa Rica's Caribbean slope. Learn progressive techniques for engaging with three-dimensional learning and meet other passionate teachers on their own journeys of discovery. By working alongside researchers and ecologists at EPI's Pacuare Reserve, and by helping species like leatherback sea turtles, you'll strengthen your curriculum in the fundamentals of science education: curiosity and real-world phenomena. This course is open to all levels of informal or formal educators; no application is required.


All of EPI's Professional Development Programs for teachers demonstrate progressive, inquiry-based teaching methods that will introduce more exploration into your classroom. Tuition includes in-country transportation and room and board. Graduate credits are available through a separate registration process.
