There will be four major site visits of 4 days or more each including: Seoul, South Korea; Chiang Mai, Krabi, and Bangkok, Thailand. 
At each site visit, the students will be exposed to the animal and plant bio-diversity and will also learn how to collect data and use statistical or calculus methods to interpret it.
