The purpose of an educational school science trip is to provide students with experiences outside their everyday activities, such as going to a state park, traveling on a science trip abroad, or visiting the local science museum. The aim of this type of trip is for high school or middle school students to observe ecosystems in their natural state and highlight a student’s in class learning material. Through our unique science service-learning programs we can link scientific study with the practical experience of community service and cultural immersion in a foreign country or at home. Our high school and middle school science trips aim to develop a lifelong interest in science, nature, and the environment. We hope they will also promote an understanding of local environmental issues, and inspire a lifelong calling to use science as a way to leave a positive impact on global communities.
School Science Trips
Classroom Applications in Field-Science
Expanding beyond the encumbrance of a traditional classroom setting, we at Appleseed Expeditions have made our science service-learning agendas custom to educating students about the geology, flora, and fauna of exclusive regions. Your school science-learning group will participate in direct scientific study. Our scientific sites of choice include national parks, bio-reserves, and science labs – all of which are available to teach students about biodiversity and scientific cycles of natural, terrestrial, aquatic, and artificial ecosystems. The participating student science group will also have plenty of opportunities to involve themselves with community service experiences, proactive volunteering, and the mediation of social injustice issues.
Science and the Environment
Biology or earth sciences programs can include study of the rainforests, volcanoes,migrations, rural land use, and much more. Our destinations feature biodiversity, ecology, and conservation, and introduce students and adults to a wealth of species and ecosystems.
Nature and Wildlife
Are you looking for environmental volunteer work, or to get involved in sustainable projects that help repair our fragile planet? Blend travel and immersion in nature and observations of the planet’s wildlife with practical work on environmental projects and endangered species conservation.
