The mission of Down to Earth Expeditions is to empower students and teachers in their ability to evoke environmental change within their communities.
A group of 6 educators will embark on an 14 day arctic expedition to hone their skills teaching in front of fellow teachers. They receive quality feedback, improve their environmental curriculum through direct experience, gain a sense of place, self, and community within an Arctic environment.
Schools, friends, and families can track our expeditions and ask us questions along the way.
After each expedition, while in the Arctic, the educators lead a group of 8-10 eleven to twelve year olds in an environmental project around “ESS3.D: Global Climate Change” Next Generation Science Standard in that given Arctic region. Students are a mix; those who have traveled from mainland USA and those from within the native region.
