Projects abound among Borneo’s stunning landscapes

Following their time in largely landlocked Bosnia & Herzegovina, our students head to Asia’s largest island of Borneo, where exploring giant caverns, dense jungles, and tropical rainforests is all part of a day’s work.

Borneo’s incredible biodiversity has been luring scientists to the island for over 150 years, and students will have ample opportunities to acquaint themselves with plants and wildlife that are found nowhere else in the world. New species are still regularly located on the island, and with a bit of luck, our students might etch their names in the annals of biology by discovering a previously unidentified species themselves.

Planned Projects

  • How can gene editing tools like CRISPR be used to bring Borneo’s orangutans off of the critically endangered list?

  • How can science and technology be used to successfully reverse Borneo’s deforestation?

  • How can students successfully market ecotourism to Borneo’s expanding tourist population?

  • How can we bioengineer a palm oil substitute that satisfies the world’s demand while preserving Borneo’s natural habitats?
