Comments from a few of the 2016 Don & Roxanne Weber Take Flight Fellows:
Ashley Daniels - Ft. Walton Beach HS, FL
The trip was an amazing hands-on experience of science and
sustainability in action.
Joe Anglehart - La Crosse Central HS, WI
The trip was fantastic. Ivan our guide was a gem. He did
a great job. It is definitely something I am going to
pursue next year with my students if that is possible.
Kerry Fergason - High Park HS, TX
The Osa Peninsula is by far the most remote place I have
been to in Costa Rica. The sheer thought of that was
often awe-inspiring. I love the emphasis on keeping all
the activities in the communities run by community leaders.
Jenny Neal - Raytown HS, MO
The trip was fantastic! Everyone gelled very well.
