In 2010, Discovery Education will launch Discovery Student Adventures, education-based international trips to eight destinations including: Arctic, Australia, China, Cost Rica, Ecuador/Galapagos Islands, Italy/Greece, New Zealand/Fiji Islands, and South Africa.
To effectively integrate educator feedback into these inaugural trips, a select group of educators will have the opportunity to travel with Discovery in the summer of 2009 as part of a one-time special opportunity to pilot a Discovery Student Adventure trip.
Educators will serve as chaperones to a group of students, and once selected for a trip will be able to select four students, who must meet the Discovery Student Adventures selection criteria. Student selection criteria will be given at time of acceptance. Travel program will be at no cost to the selected educators and students.We are looking for educators that teach 5th through 12th grade. (Link)
