VISIT TO BASE CAMP

Photo Credit: Alexandra Daley-Clark, Lindblad Expeditions


From April 13 to 16, National Geographic and Lindblad Expeditions brought all fifty 2023 Grosvenor Teacher Fellows to National Geographic Headquarters in Washington, DC, a.k.a. Base Camp. It was amazing to be in the building where the National Geographic Society was founded and even more amazing to meet the incredible educators selected to form part of the 2023 Grosvenor Teacher Fellow cohort. It was incredible to learn about all the different teachers, their classes, and projects. Teachers would be traveling to places such as Polynesia, Antarctica, Patagonia, Alaska, and the Arctic. I met my expedition partner, Jennifer Carter, who is a middle school science teacher from Oklahoma. We hit it off and are thrilled to be exploring Iceland together!


We had a packed agenda, which included a "forced fun Friday dinner", lol. It was indeed fun!



Here is a photo I took after taking a very cool photography workshop from Alexandra Daley-Clarke on Photography and Storytelling:

National Geographic Society Headquarters



On our tour of Base Camp, we were able to sit at the table where the National Geographic Society was founded in 1888 by scholars, explorers, and scientists. Today, National Geographic continues to pursue its mission "to increase and diffuse geographic knowledge while promoting the conservation of the world's cultural, historical, and natural resources."


In the room where it happened!



The National Geographic Society's flag represents the sky, land, and sea. It was designed in 1905 by Elsie Grosvenor.




Everyone at Base Camp made us feel so welcome!


¡Gracias infinitas a todos por todo!
