In our work we will have constant interaction with faculty and scholars at the Catholic University, and the University of the Pacific, as well as other institutions. We will also be visiting local schools, as well as having interviews with local educational administrators. In Cusco, we will pay a visit to one of the oldest secondary schools in the country--the Colegio de Ciencias.
In addition to these academic activities, our learning will be enhanced by our visit to the colonial and modern parts of Lima, a city on the Pacific coast re-founded by the Spaniards in 1535. Lima has been proclaimed a World Heritage Centre by the UNESCO. While in Cusco we will visit the "lost city of the Incas," the sanctuary of Machu Picchu (Old Mountain, in Quechua,) also a World Heritage Centre and one of the seven Wonders of the World. In addition, we will have a day visit to Ollantaytambo.
We have a very motivated group, and participants include Deborah Rivera, Stephanie Nutter, Cabrina Bosco, LaRhondolyn Mathies, Ashley Forrest, Carla Kolodey, Sarah Hitchings, and Meredith Henson, led by Dr. Gaetane Jean-Marie, Dr. Margaret Pentecost, and Dr. Oscar A. Aliaga.
