After a two-year break, The Morpho Institute is once again hosting its annual Educator Academy in the Amazon ! July 1-11, 2020. Spend 10 days ( July 1–11) in the Peruvian Amazon learning about this crucial ecosystem and about teaching inquiry-based science. Do field research, participate in citizen science, and explore the area’s natural history by boat, trail, and canopy walkway. Agendas for the grade-level bands are as follows: Elementary educators will explore the Amazon through the lens of place-based learning and inquiry. They’ll visit Amazon schools, conduct service projects, and learn from villagers in remote communities. Middle-level educators will do research and citizen science, learning techniques directly applicable to their teaching while exploring the Amazon rainforest and connecting with local communities. High school and Advanced Placement educators will explore tropical ecology, community-based conservation, and sustainable development. They’ll learn from indigenous villagers and make connections to their teaching.
