EarthEcho Expedition:Expedition 2017
Join the expedition in October 2017 when the EarthEcho team collaborates with educators and scientists in Southern California to examine water scarcity. Twenty-five exceptional middle school teachers - Expedition Fellows - will be selected to join in this exploration to create a collaborative curriculum that introduces students to the innovative engineering and technology solutions that are being implemented in California farms, water treatment facilities, schools, and urban centers.
Teacher Fellows participate in on-site video production, classroom content creation, post-Expedition distribution and evaluation of adventure-based STEM learning modules to their own classrooms and others classrooms across the world. Through EarthEcho Expeditions, teachers go beyond traditional classroom pedagogy by empowering their students to take civic action on a chosen environmental issue facing their local community.
Apply today! Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis ending on September 5th, 2017
Never stop exploring!
It takes more than knowledge of environmental issues to equip young people with civic skills to solve the complex problems facing our planet. Through service learning, youth identify community needs, develop plans and partnerships and are inspired and motivated to take action. The Five Stages of Service Learning—investigation, preparation, action, reflection, and demonstration—provide a reliable process. By understanding how each stage works, youth become effective community changemakers.
