I also received a VIP tour of the Miaflores Locks Visitor Center. Miraflores Locks Visitor Center http://www.pancanal.com/eng/acp/cvm/index.html is where visitors can observe transiting vessels from a few meters away
Finally, I met with the Academic Director of the City of Knowledge Foundation to discuss the City of Knowledge, student housing, classroom facilities, etc. The City of Knowledge is located on the Former Fort Clayton US. Military Base. Fort Clayton was turned over to Panama as a part of the Panama Canal Zone reversion which took place in 2000.
The City of Knowledge is an international center for education, research, and innovation. It was created to promote and facilitate synergies between universities, scientific research centers, business focusing on the new economy, and international organizations. The center is administered by the City of Knowledge Foundation. The City of Knowledge has a convention center, training and business center, digital classrooms, 700 seat auditorium, lodging villas and and a executive offices center. Just like military bases, some of the facilities are still used like they were when military personnel occupied the base. In a nut shell, most things are located within the City of Knowledge that a person would need.
