The Cabo Verde Tenth Island Project is an international enhanced STEM/STEAM program. We are helping our students with project based learning that includes science, technology, engineering, visual and performing arts, foreign languages and mathematics. All of our students have opportunities to be trained as backpack journalists, backpack scientists, backpack engineers and backpack robotic team members. Students use custom software that include student individual planners, ePortfolios, and backpack science and journalism software. We base our research and design work on our two islands. Our islands include the uninhabited island of Santa Luzia, Cape Verde and Santa Catalina Island, California. Our university partners include California State University, Long Beach, University of Southern California (USC), Super School University and the University of Cabo Verde.
