Wanna Go on a National Geographic Expedition?

It still hasn't really set in, but this December I'll be traveling with National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions to Antarctica as a Grosvenor Teacher Fellow.

As an educator, this will be the experience of a lifetime, and one that I don't want to look at as just a "trip".  I'm going to have the unique opportunity to work side by side with National Geographic Explorers, Photographers, and Naturalists, and I want your students to do the same! 

Here's how:

  1. Have your class (or an individual student) come up with a question that they would like me to ask a Nat Geo Explorer, Photographer, or Naturalist.  These questions can be about anything: whale migration patterns, photography tips, or things students can do to help preserve and protect Antarctica.  
  2. Once they come up with a question, they can submit it using either this form (click here to view), or by using the hashtag #mrpierceyOnIce (watch the spelling on my last name, there's a hidden E in there) on Twitter.  Feel free to tag me in any tweets that you send out, too (@mrpiercey).  Please do not use any student last names when submitting questions through the form or in tweets.  
  3. I'll collect these questions over the next six months leading up to my expedition December.  
  4. While down there, I'll ask the Nat Geo professionals on board any questions you have and film their response. 
  5. When I return (because, believe it or not, WIFI isn't the strongest at the bottom of the world), I'll edit and post their responses to this page.  
  6. That's it!  

Teachers, if you'd like to learn more about some of the digital tools that Mr. Piercey uses, or if you'd like to learn about becoming a National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellow, check out the links below:
