Exploration Academy presented by United Airlines is a 16 week program split between two semesters (8 weeks in the fall, and 8 weeks in the spring) for 5th – 8th grade students. Students become part of the global community as they partner up with a school from a foreign country to help each other learn about the global issues of clean water, clean air, and renewable energy. Activities include:
- Build their own water filters and test them against natural filters and professional filters
- Test air for pollution and develop ways to clean it up
- Design, construct, and test various forms of “green” energy
The class finishes with the students using the knowledge and skills they have learned to build a device to help their international friends clean up their water, air and energy.
