We would like to intentionally curate stories that help us with gifts/grants/donations based on teacher experiences in our field program, Educator Academy in the Amazon, and what they do in their classrooms after two weeks in the Peruvian Amazon rainforest.
We are working on gifts/grants/donations to raise funds for our young non-profit. We need compelling stories to help prioritize conservation of the Amazon rainforest through education and to show how the experience benefits teachers and their students after the field course.
The Morpho Institute supports the key role of K-12 education in realizing the global goal of environmental conservation and sustainability. To achieve this goal, The Morpho Institute provides professional development programs and curriculum resources which support local to global environmental stewardship in K-12 instruction.
In collaboration with US and international partners, The Morpho Institute provides US educators the opportunity to experience the Amazon rainforest as a compelling context for developing a global perspective on biological and cultural resources, participating in conservation, exploring sustainability, and inspiring environmental stewardship. Our field workshops and resources apply key elements of inquiry, STEM, and placed-based learning to assist educators in making these critical local to global connections in their classrooms, instruction, and curricula.
