Students will travel to the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador for nine days in June 2020. In the first few days of our trip, students will experience Quito, the capital of Ecuador. During their exploration, they will even get to visit the equatorial line! Then we get to explore the Galapagos Islands of Baltra, Santa Cruz, and Isabela! While we're there, students will have the opportunity to see pink flamingos, wild tortoises, and hopefully some Blue Footed Boobies, Galapagos Penguins, and Marine Iguanas! We will also be able to go on some adventure excursions like hiking Tijertas Hill, snorkeling, and exploring lava caves. The impacts that this trip will have on student learning are exponential. Students will learn prior to the trip the effects of climate change on the Galapagos Islands and be able to witness those effects first hand. Students will also be able to see STEM careers in action as well as experience a culture different than their own. My hope is that after this trip my students will become more comfortable traveling and interested in STEM field careers.
