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!
- 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.
- 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.
- I'll collect these questions over the next six months leading up to my expedition December.
- While down there, I'll ask the Nat Geo professionals on board any questions you have and film their response.
- 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.
- That's it!
