EarthEcho Expedition: | EarthEcho Expedition Water By Design

“EarthEcho Expeditions leverages the thrill of adventure to inspire a new generation of environmental champions. We are excited to partner with the Northrop Grumman Foundation on this year’s timely Expedition examining innovative solutions to quench the water demands of thirsty urban landscapes,” said Philippe Cousteau, Jr., founder of EarthEcho International.  

 

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for teachers that they can take back to their classrooms to share with their students. EarthEcho Expedition: Water By Design will include on-site production experience and collaborative curriculum creation to develop adventure-based STEM learning modules that introduce students to the innovative engineering and technology solutions addressing water scarcity issues. This expedition will explore the Sierra snowpack, the Jet-Propulsion Lab’s satellite technology, the West Basin water filtration plant and several school led success stories across the region. EarthEcho Expedition: Water By Design will culminate in a collaborative curriculum development workshop where teachers will work alongside EarthEcho’s team to create PBL units to engage students in developing solutions to real-world water resource challenges.

During 2018, these EarthEcho Expedition modules will be distributed digitally to classrooms across the world at no charge. Check back on this site for updates and new content!

“We are excited to work with EarthEcho for this unique middle school teacher experience,” said Sandra Evers-Manly, Northrop Grumman’s vice president of global corporate responsibility, and president of the Northrop Grumman Foundation. “This program will help inspire and equip teachers to bring environmental awareness, environmental stewardship and rich STEM connections back to their students and communities all over the world.”

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.
