Baja California Sur 
Educator Workshop


  • Snorkel with marine life

  • Study the NGSS

  • Learn from fellow educators

On this 5-day educator workshop, you'll explore one of the world's richest marine environments. With EPI instructors and research partners you'll study and snorkel with a rich array of marine life in the Gulf of California, and you'll examine microplastics effects and prevalence in marine ecosystems. By diving into the EPI framework, you'll learn how to use real-world phenomena that align with the NGSS to take your students' learning to new depths.

All of EPI's Professional Development Programs for teachers demonstrate progressive, inquiry-based teaching methods that will introduce more exploration into your classroom. Tuition includes in-country transportation and room and board. Graduate credits are available through a separate registration process.

Your Fieldwork

Investigate microplastics on Baja's coast

An estimated 500 pounds of plastic end up in the ocean every second. Over time, these plastics break down into microscopic forms. We'll conduct microplastic surveys along Baja's coast and contribute to the Ocean Conservancy's global community science project, all while examining the
broad-ranging impact of our consumer choices and behaviors.
