Earthwatch: School Group Expeditions for Teachers


Lead an Earthwatch Student Group Expedition and see your students become fully engaged in real-world research in places as diverse as Maine, South Africa, and Costa Rica.

These expeditions are unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for your students to discover what it means to be a working scientist engaged in field research that helps protect, conserve, and make sense of the natural world.

Teachers can apply for a Project Kindle Fellowship to get training on leading a Student Group Expedition.


WHERE DO EARTHWATCH STUDENT GROUP EXPEDITIONS GO?

Here are a few examples of travel opportunities available on Earthwatch Student Group Expeditions:

  • Explore the clear waters off the coast of Belize to help establish protected areas for sharks along the magnificent Mesoamerican Reef
  • Take a hike in the majestic Andorran Pyrenees to study the impacts of climate change on the region's many birds, reptiles, mushrooms, insects, and trees
  • Strap on your headlamp and search the forests of Arizona or the mountains of Utah for some of the world's smallest nocturnal owl species
