Peru

Fall 2020

Mysticism and mathematics in the Andes

Our 2020-21 school year includes a term in the wonderland that is Peru, a country revered by anthropologists for its Incan ruins and indigenous Indian tribes. Peru’s eleven ecological regions include lush rainforests, boulder-strewn highlands, and glimmering coastlines, and each of these varied terrains holds the possibility for extraordinary biology-themed projects. Like during our first visit, students will have ample opportunities to learn about Peru’s communal way of life by interacting with indigenous peoples, like the Q’ero, and striking up friendships with the locals through homestays and interschool extracurricular activities, like sporting contests.

Situated in the middle of a tropical mountain forest sits the crown jewel of the Incan empire, the lost city of Machu Picchu, and our visit to this archaeological marvel will surely be the highlight of the term for many of our students. Constructed in the 15th century, Machu Picchu was built without the aid of metals like iron and steel, and more impressively, without the use of wheels. Pondering how the precisely-cut stones were set in place will likely result in more questions than answers, ensuring a healthy discussion on the trek back to town.
