The Wild Classroom

As an organization of next generation scientists, The Wild Classroom and sister site Explore Biodiversity work to promote an interest in conservation, ecology and biology in a manner appealing to our youth and young at heart.

We bring nature and adventure together to show people that by making a small effort to care for what is around, you will find that there is so much to discover and explore.

Our goal is to open the eyes of the public to science by producing action-filled nature documentaries, creating exciting lesson plans for schools and educators, and by holding seminars, presentations and photographic exhibitions.

Explore your world with videos, pictures and blogs from the Wild Classroom Exeditions.

"My eCoach has helped me realize how much more powerful the teaching of standards can be when technology is used as a tool to get and keep my students engaged. Over the past year, I have been working with My eCoach to create and develop technology based projects that help my students look at and use the core 6th grade standards fractions, decimals, and proportional reasoning - in a real-world context!"
