Costa Rica is the Perfect Destination for Science Trips

I’ve just returned from an incredible trip to Costa Rica. Having never been to this little slice of Central America, I had no expectations other than to enjoy some uninterrupted family time in a beautiful spot. Wow! Not only did our visit exceed my rather humble expectations, it awakened the dormant educator in me. The lush tropical forests, pristine beaches, towering volcanoes, diverse climates and impressive animal sanctuaries made my inner science teacher drool just a little. It’s also a leader in “green” technology. It strives to be one of the first countries in the world to be carbon-neutral by 2021! If you’ve ever considered traveling internationally with students, Costa Rica is the perfect destination for science trips.

Biodiverse Environments

One of the first things that struck me upon our arrival was the sheer beauty and vivid color of the country. We stayed in Guanacaste on the Pacific side. Guanacaste is home to beautiful, black volcanic sand beaches like Playa Hermosa and biodiverse national parks like Santa Rosa and Tenorio Volcano National Parks. Students can explore crystal clear turquoise pools and waterfalls or hike trails in in Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park to get up close and personal with an active volcano. They can also enjoy natural hot springs and bubbling mud pits in the beauty of a tropical forest.

One of the highlights for my teen and tween was a zipline experience that sent them soaring above the canopy with sweeping views of the volcano and ocean! I kept my feet planted firmly on the ground, content to watch the pangolins playing in the trees above me…

Microclimates

Costa Rica is only about as big as West Virginia yet boasts 12 distinct microclimates. Students will be amazed to learn that while it is near the equator and therefore given “tropical” status, its temperature varies from hot and humid to cold and frosty (depending on elevation). The two main seasons are dry (December – April) and rainy (May – November). The tilt of the earth and the sun’s intensity play roles as well. It’s a fascinating study of how geography impacts weather and a great science lesson for students.

Cloud Forests and Hummingbirds

One specific climate sure to be a hit with students is the cloud forest. Cloud forests are found throughout the central highlands of Costa Rica. The Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve near San Jose is a stellar example of this magnificent environment. The low-level cloud cover (usually at the canopy level) exists somewhere between 3,000 and 8,000 feet. It’s a magical area ecologically rich in unique flora and fauna. In fact, Costa Rica is one of the most biologically diverse countries in the world, home to 4% of known species of plants and animals. Talk about connecting classroom to reality!

In addition to the cloud forest, the Selvatura Hummingbird Garden is an exquisite jewel nestled in the heart of Monteverde. The garden features more than 14 species of hummingbirds with a pristine waterfall as a backdrop. Students can study these delightful creatures and their habits as they dart back and forth among them.

Animal Sanctuaries

There are animal sanctuaries scattered throughout Costa Rica, but we loved the Diamante Eco Adventure Park in Guanacaste. It has world-class habitats for some of the most amazing creatures on earth. Students can view and learn about the biology, ecology and natural history of the animals. This place really focuses on education and raising awareness for the respect and protection of wildlife. Oh, did I mention? The kids can check out one of the cutest critters of all- the sloth!

Green Technology

One of the most striking features of Costa Rica is the country’s emphasis on green technology. In 2018, it generated 98% of its electricity for 300 days from renewable sources. It is a country focused on the future, using rivers, volcanoes, wind and sun to generate power. Students interested in this kind of forward-thinking technology and application will find an abundance of resources to study in Costa Rica.

Our time is Costa Rica was everything I hoped for and more. It’s a fabulous place to vacation and a perfect destination for science trips. If you want to introduce your students to its incredibly diverse opportunities for learning, call the student travel experts at Kaleidoscope Adventures at 407-345-4899. More than 25 years of experience and teachers leading the team means KA will help you plan your Costa Rica travel beyond expectations!

Cedar Point is Great for Student Groups

Recently my family and I visited Cedar Point Theme Park in Sandusky, Ohio. It had been a few years since we were last there, and I was anxious to check out the new features as well as some old favorites (still love the Gemini!!). I secretly donned my student travel guru hat as well to see if the park is as amazing for students as I remembered. Spoiler alert- it is! Thrilling attractions, excellent educational programs and stellar performance opportunities make Cedar Point great for student groups.

The Park

The moment you cross the causeway into the lot (which has plenty of bus parking), the park’s energy pulls you in. Cedar Point is the second oldest operating amusement park in the country and has maintained its popularity for a reason. It’s a beautiful spot bordered by stunning Lake Erie, which offers cooling breezes as you play all day. It’s just the right size for students to feel comfortable exploring and still know where the meeting places are. The staff is friendly and helpful, and the park is spotlessly clean.

Of course, the rides and entertainment will captivate the kiddos. Cedar Point is home to a jaw dropping 17 roller coasters and tons of other great rides. My middle schooler/daredevil rode them all (including the ridiculously hair-raising Dragster) while I enjoyed a rousing ride on the carousel. There’s no shortage of things for student groups to do and see.

Fabulous Food

Park food is always a highlight and Cedar Point has some of the best around. Classic fare like corn dogs and elephant ears are always fan favorites, while new and trendy choices like BackBeatQue, Chick-Fil-A and Starbucks appeal to young and old(er) alike!

Exceptional Educational Programs

Each spring, Cedar Point hosts exceptional educational programs for students. Engineering Day introduces students to the role STEM plays behind the scenes, both creatively and mechanically. Physics, science and math take center stage with hands-on exhibits and interactive displays during several days in May. Lesson plans for middle and high school as well as a catered lunch are available. Amusement Park 101 is a unique program that spotlights career opportunities in the amusement industry. These are all great ways to incorporate curriculum into your class trip!

Phenomenal Performance Venue

Your performance group can “flex” their skills in front of an international audience on a Cedar Point stage or as part of a parade. Marching bands, theater groups, choirs, orchestras and dance teams are welcome to join the fun. If you’re looking for an adjudicated performance, Cedar Point’s Festival of Music is open to elementary, middle and high school performers. Experienced adjudicators will provide helpful evaluations and advice to inspire your group’s best practices.

Our day in the park reinforced what I already knew – Cedar Point is great for student groups of all kinds. When you’re ready to plan your performance, educational or homeschool adventures to this unique locale on the lake, Kaleidoscope is ready to help. Our expert team of student travel consultants provides top notch service and unrivaled attention to detail. Trust Kaleidoscope Adventures to plan your travel beyond expectations!

3D Printing is Changing the World!

Among my 16-year old’s friend group, 3D printing is a hot topic. Several of his cohorts have their own printers (causing a suspiciously green cast to my son’s usually thick skin). They discuss types of printers and their uses with the same casualness that I discussed a Walkman at his age. I confess that I really didn’t know much about these three-dimensional wonders, other than what I learned on an episode of the Big Bang Theory. I decided to dig a little deeper and discovered that 3D printing is changing the world. How’s that for a headline?!?

What is 3D printing?

3D printing is a process used to make three dimensional objects by fusing melted layers from the ground up. The process includes designing the part to be printed, slicing the file into parts using available programs like TinkerCAD or 3D Slash, printing the actual object using a variety of materials and giving it a finishing touch.

When was 3D printing invented?

3D printing is not as new as you may think. In fact, it’s been around since 1984 when Charles Hull invented stereolithography. It didn’t make it into the mainstream until all the patent laws expired and people began to understand more about it. As more people gained access to technology (via the internet), interest grew. Now, 3D printers are available to anyone – just check out Amazon!

Which 3D printer is best?

The short answer is- it depends on what you want! Models vary based on cost, functionality, quality and materials. Decide what you want to print, what materials you want to use, the size of your item, color specifications, open or closed frame models, etc. Once you check your boxes, you can begin to search for the one that works for you.

What kind of materials can be used for printing?

There are a lot of options, but the most common ones are plastic. They are easy to melt, and spools don’t cost much. There are different types of plastic like PETG (polyethylene terephthalate), which is similar to the plastic used in soda bottles, and PLA (polylactic acid), which generally comes from renewable resources like corn starch and sugar beet pulp.  That makes PLA more biodegradable and environmentally friendly, but neither one is edible!

What can you make with a 3D printer?

The possibilities are endless. People have already used 3D printing to make acoustic guitars, medical models, sculptures, camera lenses, clocks, phone cases and more. My personal favorite is jewelry- talk about a conversation piece!

How will 3D printing play a role in the future?

The impact of 3D printing for both commercial and home use is staggering. Much like the internet moved from obscurity to complete necessity in our lives, 3D printing is poised to lead us into the future. Current trends are already hinting at what is to come.  It will influence art, fashion, medicine, manufacturing, architecture, education, the automotive industry, aerospace engineering and construction in ways we can’t yet imagine.

Will 3D printing be featured during Journey into STEAM?

Teens and tweens like my son are preparing for careers in a unique time. Many of the jobs that will be available to them have yet to be created! Technology (like 3D printing) continues to unfold and shape the workplace. This is exactly why Journey into STEAM was developed.

Journey is an exclusive event for middle and high school students, power packed with opportunities to learn, explore and get hands-on with STEAM. The STEAM fair will take place on a soundstage in the heart of Universal Orlando Resort™.  It will allow students to speak directly to the experts, participate in hands-on activities and discover future career opportunities in emerging industries.

The brilliant minds behind DeltaMaker 3D printing will be one of the companies participating. They’ll answer questions, share the latest models and discuss the future of 3D printing for both personal and professional use. It’s a unique opportunity for career exploration and a great way to demonstrate how 3D printing is changing the world. My son will be there – and he’ll be the envy of his friends!

The Disney Candlelight Processional – Make A Joyful Noise!

What is the Disney Candlelight Processional?

The Disney Candlelight Processional is an inspirational telling of the story of Christmas since 1958. Celebrity guest narrators share the greatest story ever told while surrounded by an array of student choirs and the Voices of Liberty, accompanied by a fifty-piece, world class Disney Orchestra. The candles held by the cast during the performance add a beautiful touch.

This dramatic holiday spectacular is held three times per night Thanksgiving Day through December 30, 2020 in the World Showcase at Epcot in Orlando, Florida. The open-air America Gardens Theatre sits on the banks of the World Showcase Lagoon near the American Adventure Pavilion.

Who will be there?

Celebrity guest narrators tell the age-old story of Christmas each year with visitors from around the world. This year, the list includes Whoopi Goldberg, Gary Sinise and Neil Patrick Harris (to name a few). Narrators are subject to change. In addition to a celebrity narrator your choir will also be able to perform right next to the world famous Voices of Liberty.  The Voices of Liberty are an 8-part a capella group that performs at the parks as well as around the world.

Who can apply?

All choirs 9th grade or higher can audition to be a part of the grand celebration! Deadline for application is early September . Groups are evaluated based on interpretation and execution of music, showmanship and stage presence, accompanists, and overall show value. The minimum group size for this event is 10 participants. Transportation is also not included and will need to be handled on your own or through your preferred travel company. Three chaperones at least are required to travel with the group to remain backstage during your group’s performance.

How can we apply?

To apply for Candlelight 2020 your group has to fill out this application form to Disney directly. The application includes a video of a performance less than a year old. One of the pieces in the video has to be a specific arrangement of “O Holy Night” they provide the sheet music for this. Once the video is recorded and the application submitted you will just need to wait to see if you have been accepted!

When is rehearsal?

You will receive the show music 6-8 weeks before your appearance and a pre-performance rehearsal will be arranged with a guest conductor and professional Disney singers.

What about costumes?

Students are required to furnish full-length black dress pants (no jeans), a plain white shirt (no turtlenecks), black socks, and closed-toe black shoes (no sandals, flip-flops, or athletic shoes). The robes will be provided to your group on the day of your performance as well as the candles to be held.

Flying with Special Medical Considerations

Student groups that fly face unique challenges. Specifically, they must navigate the constantly changing rules and regulations of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). TSA guidelines exist for the safety and security of all air travelers.  This includes those flying with special medical considerations.

Inevitably there will be a student on the trip who requires special medical attention. Whether s/he needs medication, equipment, is autistic or is hearing/vision impaired, be aware of the TSA’s procedures. A little research can go a long way in making the travel process easier.

Medication

Clearly label any medications (liquid or solid) since they may be screened or tested for explosives. Let the TSA officer know that they are medically necessary. Separate them from other items to be screened before beginning. Let the agent know about any items associated with the medicine (freezer packs, syringes, pumps, etc.). Declare any liquids that exceed the 3-1-1 rule at the checkpoint for inspection.

Autism/Spectrum Disorders

The screening process can be traumatic for students with autism or spectrum disorders. Inform the TSA officer of this situation as soon as possible. Students with these special needs can be screened with their traveling companions or chaperones. Share any medical documentation with the officer to determine how best to proceed.

External Medical Devices

Report any devices attached to a student’s body (feeding tube, insulin pump, etc.) to the TSA officer upon arrival. Share any documentation for the device and disconnect if possible before screening. If the device cannot be disconnected safely, follow manufacturer guidelines for exposure to X-rays, metal detectors or advanced imaging.

Wheelchairs

Wheelchairs and scooters require some pre-airport effort. Let the airline know in advance if your traveler has a power wheelchair.  Tell them the make, model and type of battery. Consider how s/he will transfer into the plane seat and snap a photo of the equipment in the event damage may occur.

Security presents a different challenge. Passengers with mobility issues can be screened through the advanced imaging technology, metal detector, or a pat-down. TSA officers will screen seat cushions and any non-removable pouches or fanny packs.

As the student boards the plane (pre-boarding should be available), s/he will need to be transferred to an aisle-sized wheelchair. The student’s personal chair will be returned upon landing, most likely at baggage claim.

Vision and Hearing Impaired

Students with vision or hearing impairments can ask for assistance with screening. Be aware that canes, Braille note-takers and other aids must go through an X-ray. Students with hearing aids or cochlear implants are NOT required to remove them. However, they may be required to undergo additional screenings such as pat down or inspection. Let the TSA officer know of these conditions so they can help.

Traveling with students is always an adventure. Students flying with special medical considerations make it even more so. It doesn’t have to be overwhelming, though. A little research and planning can make for smooth sailing – even through the endless security lines!

Flying With a Student Group

You’ve decided to skip the motorcoach and try taking to the air with your student group. What are the rules? What do you need to know to make your flight go as smoothly as possible? Flying with a student group can be intimidating. The regulations for air travel change constantly, making it easy to be overwhelmed. Below is a guide to help your group fly the friendly skies.

REAL ID

Beginning October 1, 2020, every air traveler 18 years of age and older will need a REAL ID-compliant driver’s license or another acceptable form of ID to fly within the United States. According to the TSA website, “REAL ID-compliant cards are generally marked with a star located in the upper portion of the card.” Travelers younger than 18 do not need identification, but their adult companions and chaperones do.

What to Take on the Plane

Students and adults have very different ideas of what to take on the plane. Items teens deem necessary to survival are probably not. Think in terms of basics:

  • Photo ID / Passport
  • Snacks for the plane (check with group leader)
  • Backpack with a change of clothes in the event a bag is lost
  • Carry-on liquids, aerosols, creams and gels using the 3-1-1 rule (3.4 oz bottle or less; 1 quart-sized, clear, plastic, zip-top bag; 1 bag per passenger)
  • Headphones for electronic devices like cell phones and iPads (all set to airplane mode, of course!)

Packing Dos and Don’ts

There’s a LONG list of banned items for carry-on and/or checked bags by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). Students may not realize items are prohibited and toss them in a purse or backpack, causing delays or even fines. Some items include:

  • Nail clippers with files
  • Pocket knife
  • Pepper spray
  • Electronic lighters, plasma lighters, arc lighters
  • Insect repellent

Students will be glad to know that any artificial skeleton bones or live fish are welcome to tag along!  Be sure to check the list before packing to eliminate any confusion.

Surviving Security

Everyone dreads the security line, but it’s necessary for the safety of all air travelers. Herding a group of students through the long and winding lines can be difficult, but a little advance prep can make it easier:

Plan to remove your shoes. Unless you are over the age of 75, you will probably be asked to take them off

Eliminate the heavy metal. Skip the big belt buckles, heavy metallic jewelry and keys or be prepared to remove them all at security for screening. If you have body piercings, remove them or plan on a pat down

Remove your laptop before passing through security. In some cases, you may be asked to remove all electronics from your bag to be scanned individually

Tips for Success

This may be the first time flying for some of your students. If so, you may want to share some tips to simplify the process. Repeat travelers will benefit from a friendly reminder as well:

Do not lock luggage for easier TSA accessibility

Discreetly label bags with identifying information

Make sure any checked bags are less than 50 lbs.

Limit carry on items to one bag and one personal item (handbag, backpack, briefcase, laptop computer, with or without a bag)

NEVER leave luggage unattended

NEVER joke about bombs, firearms or terrorism while traveling. There is no quicker way to gain unwanted attention from the TSA! Any and all comments of this nature are considered real threats

Flying with a student group will get you to your destination quickly and efficiently. Following these guidelines will help to ensure that it’s simple, easy and fun!

Teacher Tips For Promoting Trips

If you travel with students, you know how much work goes into planning the perfect trip. When you put your heart and soul into organizing, it’s incredibly frustrating when sign-ups don’t go as planned. You’re not alone. Others (many others!) have been through this process and can share some great tips for promoting trips.

Plan with A Partner

If you have a teaching partner or good friend in your building, ask them to join the trip! You’ll gain a much broader base of support for your adventure if you take it beyond your own classroom walls.

Hype It In Class

Talk up the trip with your students at every opportunity. Share snippets from the destination you’ll be visiting. Relate your instructional content to the trip. Find unique ways to catch students’ interest. For example, if you’re heading to Boston, read Robert McCloskey’s “Make Way for Ducklings” to your class. If you know Ford’s Theatre is part of your itinerary, introduce them to “Our American Cousin,” the ill-fated play that Lincoln was watching on the night of his assassination. There are lots of ways to make your trip relevant and engaging for students!

Host A Parent Meeting

Host an informational parent meeting as early as possible. Getting students interested is half the battle; getting parents on board is a bit trickier. Bringing everyone together to discuss trip details, share benefits of student travel, address safety concerns will fast track your trip. Once parents are comfortable with the itinerary, sign-ups are a snap.

Embrace Social Media

Use social media to your advantage. Some of us may not appreciate the value of Instagram or Twitter but I guarantee your students do! Find creative ways to post information or build excitement for the trip. Maybe you’ll even go viral!

Make it Affordable

Keep the trip costs in check by offering fundraising opportunities. There are some awesome fundraisers available beyond the usual car wash or candy sale to make your trip accessible to all.

Count on the Experts

When in doubt, contact the expert trip planners at Kaleidoscope Adventures for a helping hand. You’ll have access to the best tips and tools as well as the collective experience of more than 25 years in the student travel industry. KA’s reputation for excellence is unparalleled and highly recommended among educators.

As you begin to plan, keep these tips for promoting trips in mind. A little effort goes a long way in pumping up participation and making your journey a success!

Tips For Surviving and Thriving During Your First Band Camp

My son is a gifted saxophonist. He shined brightly in his middle school band, as well as in many regional competitions and festivals. Having no musical abilities whatsoever, my husband and I basked in his accomplishments without truly understanding the effort he put forth to achieve them. We assumed that the hour or two he stayed after school was all the commitment necessary to be a successful musician. Then he started high school and joined the band….

Holy Moly. I had NO idea what participation in marching band involved! Practices started the week school ended and have been increasing in intensity ever since. Now we’ve moved into the final stretch of summer and BAND CAMP is upon us. Having been through football camp, baseball camp, cheer camp, dance camp (you get the idea), I thought I was somewhat prepared. I was not. Band camp requires physical stamina, discipline and serious organizational skills- and that’s just for the parents!

Freshmen are feeling their way through these first crazy weeks of band camp. The days are long, hot and tiring but lots of fun! Below are some tips to help your newcomer survive AND thrive!

LOTS OF LIQUIDS

Be sure to stay well-hydrated during the steamy days of band camp. Fill your biggest water bottle (we use a jug) with ice and water and be sure to refill often.

FOOD FOR FUEL

Eat well during these weeks. Hauling instruments around for eight hours a day is surprisingly rigorous and requires healthy meals and snacks.

DRESS FOR SUCCESS

Sunscreen, hats and sunglasses are essential for long days in the sun. Lightweight shorts, comfortable shoes, and white t-shirts help as well. Fanny packs will help keep you organized while keeping hands free. If you aren’t a “fan” of the fanny pack, wear some cargo shorts to easily carry notecards, pens or other necessities.

EXTRA ESSENTIALS

Extra items that may be helpful include note cards on a spiral ring, chalk for marking placement, balm for chapped lips, extra instrumental supplies and a poncho (they can’t all be sunny days!).

REST AND REJUVENATE

A good night’s sleep is vital to making it through the long and strenuous days. This really shouldn’t be a problem, though, as odds are good your freshman will fall into bed!

CONTROL THE CLUTTER

It seems the only thing longer than camp days is the time it takes to complete the paperwork! It’s a never-ending barrage of consent forms, order forms, permission slips, medical forms, fundraisers and more.  Keep control of the chaos by keeping everything in one central location (think office file, folder, etc.) and keep the due dates on a checklist on the front.

PARTNER WITH THE PROS

Freshmen will always have to pay their dues as band newbies, but upperclassmen are kinder than we think. Team up with one of the more seasoned participants for advice on how to navigate these new waters.

My rookie is currently in the thick of band camp and seems to be faring well, despite the arduous days. These few common-sense suggestions can help make the new recruits’ time in the trenches a bit more bearable!

Halloo! London is a Great International Student Trip

Taking students abroad for a performance or educational trip can be overwhelming. Researching student-friendly destinations, understanding local customs or even dealing with language barriers all play roles in your decision. If it’s your first time, you might want to consider London for a great international student trip.

Iconic Sites

London is an old soul with a modern vibe. Its history is long and rich, spanning wars, royals, arts, architecture and more. Start at the Tower of London with its fascinating and horrifying saga of more than a thousand years. Visit the famed Piccadilly Circus or Covent Garden. Neither are quite what you’d expect from the names but worth the stops (and free to see). Westminster Abbey, built in 960 A.D. by Benedictine monks, will inspire you with its tradition and treasures. Iconic Buckingham Palace and the changing of the guard is a must-do but be sure to practice your best royal wave first!

Iconic Sights!

For a bird’s eye view of the city, ride the thrilling Coca-Cola London Eye, a 443’ observation wheel in the heart of London. St. Paul’s Cathedral also offers lovely vistas of the city from the Stone and Golden Galleries as well as an exquisite interior. Performance groups will goggle at the unique acoustics of the Whispering Gallery and all the kiddos will love heading down to check out the crypts.

Spooky Spots

Teenagers are all about the macabre, and the London Dungeon on the South Bank won’t disappoint. There are 19 live shows and two thrill rides highlighting London’s (sometimes) gory past. Continuing the theme, try a walking tour featuring the gruesome tales of Jack the Ripper in Victorian London. You’ll walk in the infamous steps of the East End killer, along with the investigators who tried to solve his horrific murders.

Trendy Tea and Tours

While “spilling the tea” is all the rage, Claridge’s is still the coolest place to serve it! You’ll love the experience of afternoon tea in one of London’s trendiest spots. Keep that pinky in the air!

The Harry Potter Bus Tour of London will cast a spell on your travelers as you tour film locations and inspirations throughout the city. All muggles will ride in the comfort of a coach to see highlights from all eight films. Perhaps a London Duck Tour may be just the thing to wet your feathers. There are several amphibious adventures from which to choose, each offering a unique perspective of England’s capital.

Freebies and Fees

One thing you should know about London when planning your trip is that many of its famous museums are FREE. Facilities like the National GalleryNatural History MuseumMuseum of London and more have no admission fees. That’s a good thing, especially when you consider that other activities in and around the city can be pricey. You do have to purchase in pounds (English currency), but the exchange rate for U.S. dollars is currently the best it’s been in years.

London is a great choice for your first foray into international travel with students. There’s so much history, tons to do and you students can PROBABLY understand the language (cough cough).
