Our Story
   8 Years of STEM Educational Trips To Costa Rica   

“By participating in the Show Me Costa Rica project, I see an opportunity to break the cycle in my family,

giving me the chance to travel internationally, experience a different culture,

study foreign ways of life, and strengthen my educational background.”

– Septisha Riley, Show Me Costa Rica Participant




Our venture aims to develop 21st century leaders through entrepreneurship, science and global travel. The Show Me Costa Rica Project’s purpose is to bring equity to international learning experiences for high school students in under resourced communities. Our students expand their world view by travelling internationally for the first time.  We sell freshly roasted premium coffee from the finest Costa Rican farms and Pura Vida merchandise to pay for our students educational trip.
