This year for Challenges Week, NCBIS students went to Rome and Pompeii. Rome is the perfect place for an Art and History Tour with many masterpieces from the Renaissance such as Michaelangelo’s Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City. We also saw our share of History as we visited the ancient Roman forum and Colosseum. We the ancient Roman streets ofthe Lost city of Pompeii and learned what it was like to live almost 2000 years ago. Top that all off with delicious Italian Gelato, laughing and bonding with friends, it sure was a trip to remember.
