The Inquiry, Sustainability, and Conservation in the Amazon field course is an 11-day (door to door) cross-curricular workshop designed specifically to meet the needs of independent school educators and their students.
This innovative course brings small teams of educators and students from independent schools together to enage in hands-on investigations, citizen science research projects, and inquiry-based field studies designed to deepen understanding of the Amazon rainforest ecosystem. Working with field researchers as well as Maijuna community members, participants will dig deep into the complexities of rainforest conservation and sustainable development - and explore how to improve sustainability efforts back home. This collaborative opportunity is designed to engage educators and students alike, with break out sessions to meet your different goals and objectives.
