A Message to Students and Parents

I was born and raised in Mexico City and I am passionate about water management. Going beyond what is in the news media, scientific articles, magazines or in books, I truly believe in experiential learning, putting students in situations where they learn by doing and experimenting. Student will understand and experience the challenges of water resources management in Megacities. Also, they will experience the Mexican culture, an ancient culture rich in traditions, people, art, music and food. The National Polytechnic Institute (the second largest University Systems in Mexico) is our project partner, and they will provide accommodation, transportation, and services in a safe university environment."
