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 tropic ecology, community-based conservation, and sustainable  development. They’ll learn from indigenous villagers and make connections to their teaching.

Ten teachers can participate at each grade level, and scholarships are available.
