Each year, Down to Earth Expeditions launches an educational expedition to an Arctic location to highlight various environmental issues, while empowering the next generation to act on these issues.
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.
