GET READY… SELECT THE RIGHT EXPEDITION FOR YOUR GROUP

All Earthwatch Student Group Expeditions involve hands-on field research, but each expedition is unique. Some involve hiking, others include swimming or boating––and every expedition focuses on a different aspect of scientific research. With so many options available, it’s a good idea to read through all available Earthwatch Student Group Expeditions before making a choice. Some of the questions to ask include:

  • How long do we want to be away?
  • How far do we want to travel?
  • What kind of research interests us?
  • What level of physical activity is right for us?
  • Do we want modern or rustic accommodations?

When you're ready to move forward, Contact Us and we'll help you narrow down your choices and select an expedition that is the right fit for you and your students.
