Study Away in Southwest, USA

Southwest US Study Abroad

This program has been cancelled for 2020. 

Program Description

Ever wonder how much Jell-O it would take to fill the Grand Canyon? Or how much wrapping paper is needed to wrap the Hoover Dam? Answer these questions and many more on the Southwest USA Study Away Tour! This academic program exposes students to the applications of mathematics in a variety of science, technology, and engineering fields through embracing the majesty of the Grand Canyon, marveling at the engineering of the Hoover Dam, and gazing into the cosmos at the Lowell Observatory.

Ignite your passions by being transported to the past through petroglyphs and dinosaur tracks, immersed in Native American history and culture, envision renewable energy resources, and by traversing surreal and volcanic landscapes. Join us as we make mathematics come alive in the Southwest USA!

Please note this program will involve a lot of walking.
