Teach Earth 2022:
As Earthwatch’s flagship teacher fellowship program, Teach Earth provides selected teachers with an opportunity to field on an all-teacher Earthwatch expedition team. Fellows engage directly in scientific field research alongside leading scientists and participate in facilitated workshops to help translate their field experience into a lesson plan or community action plan for use in their own school or community. We welcome applications from U.S.-based K-12 classroom teachers of any subject.
Project Kindle 2022:
Project Kindle gives teachers the resources they need to successfully lead their students on an Earthwatch field experience within two years. Fellows first get to experience an Earthwatch expedition alongside a team of teacher fellows and team leaders (much like Teach Earth). Then through workshops led by Project Kindle alumni and Earthwatch staff, fellows learn how to bring their students out on a school group expedition. We welcome applications from U.S.-based high school teachers of any subject.
Expeditions for both educator fellowships will take place in the summer of 2022. Teachers will spend 7 to 14 days in the field. Teachers can apply for full or partially funded expeditions, plus a travel stipend. Applications are due January 10, 2022. Applicants will be notified by April 30th.
