Free to the entire K-12 community and our worldwide audience of all ages, our programming use the allure of long Arctic journeys pulled by powerful sled dogs and paired with Arctic research as the vehicle to explore natural and social sciences while we experience cultures and life in 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. For each project, inquiry-based curricula is developed to center on an environmental issue that changes to reflect the expedition’s current Arctic locale and associated indigenous cultures. Field data is incorporated in the curriculum generating a unique opportunity to learn real science with real people and real data. Data collected on the trail support us all 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.
