Yes, I have had amazing opportunities in the past to learn in the field and to produce materials for my classroom, but nothing will compare to the 38-day adventure ahead of me.
Thanks to a generous grant from my school, I will be traveling around the world on a mission to film science videos for my students. As a 7th grade life science teacher, I lead students to explore our local ecology, and we are able to do some pretty amazing things, like trudging out in waders to collect invertebrates, canoeing out to identify invasive aquatic plants, and exploring multiple waterways to analyze water quality. We compare these discoveries locally, but how do these parameters compare globally?
My daughter, Olivia, will be traveling with me, and she will be the one asking the questions on camera and interviewing experts along the way. As an adventurous explorer and an inquisitive student, she is perfect for this mission!
