Free to the entire K-12 community, our programming use the allure of exciting Arctic dogsled expeditions and Arctic research as the vehicle through which K-12 teachers and students gain an understanding of natural and social sciences while we experience the cultures of the Arctic.
Since 2000 our adventure learning expeditions have circumnavigated the Arctic to observe, experience, and document traditional ecological knowledge and collect previously unknown in-situ environmental realities – while collaborating with K-12 students and teachers in state-of-the-art online learning environments.
Data collected on the trail support teachers and students in understanding natural and social sciences from an indigenous cultural perspective as well as the science community in their development and validation of models and theories. The inquiry-based classroom and online curricula center on an environmental issue that changes to reflect the expedition’s current Arctic locale and associated indigenous cultures.
Our programming is developed by the non-profit organization GoNorth! adventure Learning in collaboration with NOMADS Online Classroom Expeditions. This is all made possible by the most valuable support of Connectria and other organizations and companies, educators, scientists, and local Arctic expertise.
