Educational Expeditions

Down to earth expeditions

 seeks to instill environmental stewardship within students by creating connection to the natural world. Each year DTE plans an educational expedition to a different Arctic location in the world and films their journey.


DTE started with two questions: How do we connect young students to arctic regions affected by climate change and how can we as adventurers continue to explore landscapes with purpose?

Michaela Precourt teaches at a multi-age expeditionary learning school in Methow Valley, WA. This year (2017/18) DTE will start an exchange program. Where her students will travel to the Arctic for the end of the expedition to learn from the explorers(DTE adult team) about what they saw and to work with local students. . Students of the Arctic will travel to Methow Valley to collaborate about issues in their environment and what they can do about it. She hopes to open up a scholarship fund in future years that allows any student from around the world to participate. Til' then, your school will be able to track our expedition, ask questions along the way, watch the interaction between schools collaborating,  and watch video lesson blogs about their journey.  



As we move forward, we as humans need to continue having a more authentic connection to our world in order to understand it, appreciate it, and help it. Each year a group of educators, teachers, pro-athletes, and/or scientists will go on a trip to a remote Arctic location to have an experience they can share with the students across the globe. At DTE we want to give adults the opportunity to reflect, find their sense of place, and build connections; so to bring inspiration to communities.
