Sampling Earthwatch

Come experience what it’s like to contribute to scientific field research with Earthwatch scientists on one of our many programs!

Earthwatch is a nonprofit dedicated to connecting people with scientists worldwide to conduct environmental research and empowering them with the knowledge they need to conserve the planet. In addition to an array of domestic and international expeditions designed for the general public (see https://earthwatch.org/expeditions), we also have several fully funded teacher and student fellowship programs: TEACH EARTH is a professional development experience for K-12 teachers where you’ll join a team of educators and conduct real-world research alongside working scientists, returning to the classroom with teaching tools and the confidence to make science come alive for your students. PROJECT KINDLE is for high school science teachers interested in leading a student group expedition in the next two years. As on any Earthwatch expedition, you and your team of fellow teachers will perform crucial research and data collection in the field. But you’ll also take part in workshops designed to help you organize and lead a school trip, on topics such as fundraising, preparing students for travel, and getting buy-in from school administrators and parents. IGNITE is a student fellowship, now in its 30th year, which aims to spark curiosity and a passion for science among Los Angeles-area high school students through a two-week scientific expedition over summer break. GIRLS IN SCIENCE is a student fellowship that aims to empower female-identifying teens to expand their interest in science and technology and build confidence through hands-on environmental research alongside female experts in the field. Come learn more about these exciting programs and get to know Earthwatch!

About the
Festival

Cambridge Science Festival, the first of its kind in the United States, is a madcap celebration of science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM). A multifaceted, multicultural event, the Festival makes science accessible, interactive, and fun, highlighting the impact of STEAM in all our lives.

The Cambridge Science Festival was founded by and is produced by the MIT Museum.
