If we’re going to live sustainably on our planet, it’s important that students learn what it means to be a global citizen. We need to inspire the next generation of scientists and explorers and there are no better role models than those who are on the frontlines of researching, documenting, protecting, and exploring our planet.
Every scientist and explorer can remember when it happened, when their passion for their choose pursuit was ignited. It may have been meeting someone, seeing a documentary, reading a book, or being inspired by a dynamic educator. You can spark these ‘aha’ moments for your students by bringing the world into your classrooms through virtual connections with leading scientists and explorers around the world, and it’s easier than you think!
As educators, we strive to bring meaningful and relevant learning experiences to our students each day, to connect the dots between what we’re teaching and how it applies to the real world. Join educator and National Geographic Explorer Joe Grabowski as he shares the story of the unexpected turn his education career took when he began engaging his students through the stories and adventures of scientists and explorers around the world. Dive into the exciting resource that can have your students virtually exploring outside their classroom walls within the week and learn tips and tricks for engaging your students before and after these unique experiences.
