I traveled to the Pantanal wetland in Brazil to help build the Pantanal Center for Education and Research (PCER). The main objectives of PCER are to provide education in the Pantanal while promoting sustainability and conservation of the wildlife. The majority of my experience involved building and testing the water systems for the buildings that I spent last semester designing. In the process I gained a better perspective of engineering challenges in developing areas and learned first-hand about Pantaneiro and Brazilian culture.
