Our friends at Exploration Nation are about to embark on an ambitious trip and we are thrilled to be partnering with them! Tune in to their upcoming journey and bring the beauty of Central America streaming into your classroom.
In April of 2013, a team of kids, Special Forces veterans and surgeons will travel from around the world to San Jose, Costa Rica to begin a 14 day scientific expedition through the jungle that will culminate in setting up a surgical clinic for the Rama indians in Nicaragua.
Why: To inspire and motivate elementary and middle school students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics for the betterment of mankind.
How: For each of the fourteen days of the expedition, Exploration Nation will broadcast live to hundreds of thousands of classrooms around the world. Students can follow Team XN as they trek through the jungles of Central America, perform valuable scientific research and work side by side with doctors to deliver badly needed medical services and supplies. Exploration Nation will also create a series of lesson plans from the Expedition on topics including sustainable agriculture, renewable energy, ethnobotany and medical innovation.
When: Educators can sign up for the free, live broadcast of the Expedition between now and February 15th.
