Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants is an organization which knocks down classroom walls and take students anywhere in the world, never having to leave their desks. It aims to inspire the next generation of students by bringing science, exploration, adventure and conservation into classrooms through virtual speakers and field trips with leading experts across the globe.
For Secret Path Week, for the first time ever, Exploring by the Seat of Your Pants will be focusing on Inigidnous education featuring Indigenous scientists, explorers, artists, activists and speakers. This will be a valuable way to engage your class in reconciliation and encourage your students to “Do Something”!
