Starting in February, InsightSTEM has STEM Exploration Expeditions available for Students, Young STEM Professionals and Innovators that are interested! Gain some more STEM knowledge by joining us on a trip to Ubud, Bali, where we will take part in different activities and show that STEM learning through exploration is the best way to gain more STEM knowledge and experience. It is a great opportunity, so don't miss out!
There are a total of three Exploration Expeditions available, starting in February of 2017! The first expedition available is called Innovation Escape. This expedition focuses on creating new STEM related projects and collaborating with others to generate ideas and exchange knowledge. This expedition takes place February 13-17.
The second expedition available is called Tech Tinkering Boot Camp, which actually occurs in the same week as Innovation Escape. This expedition provides the opportunity to generate ideas and utilize collaboration in order to develop new STEM Exploration Technology Concepts. There are workshops and other activities for knowledge sharing and the chance to work with many different operating systems and electronics. This expedition takes place February 13-17.
The third (and fourth expedition) is called STEM Spring Break, which has two different weeks that you can choose from or you can choose to participate in both weeks! STEM Spring Break has the goal of creating media to promote excitement in STEM knowledge through exploration around the world! Our expedition crew will go to Ubud, Indonesia, where they will participate in many endeavors including, volcano hiking, ocean snorkeling, mountain biking, and wildlife encounters. Everyone is encouraged to have a fun time while finding ways to share the excitement of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics knowledge to inspire the next generation of learners! This expedition takes place March 6-10 and/or 13-17.
Innovation Escape and Tech Tinkering Boot Camp also have inspirational and cultural activities planned that may include a volcano hike, cultural tour, yoga, spa day, visiting the monkey forest, beach day, and ocean snorkeling! Join us in visiting a new place and gaining more STEM knowledge and experience through exploration!
In order to take part in any of these STEM Exploration Expeditions, you must become a fundraiser and raise a minimum amount in order to become part of one of our crews. Once you become part of one of the Exploration Expedition Crews, you will create a fundraising page for yourself in order to come on the trip! We will work as a team in order to raise the funds necessary for you to come on the trip! Have others donate to your page in order to fund yourself going on one of our trips. Each expedition has a different amount you need to fundraise and once you get to your goal, you will be able to become part of the expedition, so decide fast, because the earlier you sign up, the longer you will have to fundraise! If you are unable to reach your fundraising goal, we can work something out and try to work with what you have raised, although it may not include all of the activities.
Important information to know: Once you have raised the necessary funds to come on any of these expeditions, you are responsible for coordinating and paying for your own travel plans to and from Bali. If you need help, we are more than happy to work with you to try and help find flights that would work in your price range. Know that once you are in Bali, all of your food, lodging, and activities are covered from your fundraising, you will only need to worry about travel to and from Bali (flights).
