Foxboro Regional Charter School

N 42° 03' 25" 
W 71° 14' 42"

(including how to look them up by address)

The EarthView team is pleased to be visiting Foxboro Regional for the first time; we have enjoyed many visits to the nearby Ahern School, and are happy to meeting some new students and educators in Foxboro (or Foxborough), a town fairly close to our home base at BSU. In fact, we invite students to compare the coordinates of their school with those of the BSU campus where EarthView is stored and where we do most of our geography teaching. When we do programs on our own campus, we usually use the Kelly Gym, whose coordinates are 41°59'15"N, 70°58'12"W. How does that compare to Foxboro Regional?

We were also delighted to learn that students from Foxboro Regional are preparing to embark on a service trip to Nicaragua! In 2006, EarthView team member Dr. Hayes-Bohanan led a study tour to Nicaragua for what he thought would be a one-time opportunity to learn about coffee with his students. He fell in love with everything about Nicaragua, and has now brought his whole family and more than 120 students to the country during 12 travel courses entitled Geography of Coffee. Several of our EarthView Wranglers (student assistants) have also made the journey, including current team member Jackie.
