Why Travel
with EPI?

Education is a journey, not a destination. EPI's Travel Programs are designed to nurture the sense of discovery at the heart of all learning. In the field, you're free to explore, inquire, and investigate your curiosities. By working with wildlife and helping out researchers, you'll ignite a passion for science and conservation that will last a lifetime.

Expeditionary Learning

Rustic field sites & remote locales: they're essential parts of an EPI program. In field-based education, learning is filled with life and teachable moments are everywhere.

Scientist Partners

EPI partners with world-class scientists and scientific institutions at all of its program sites, but students aren't here for lectures. They'll assist in on-going research on critically threatened wildlife and ecosystems.

 Community Engagement

At EPI, we believe that all education, even science education, takes place within a cultural context. Cultural exchange is an essential element of our programs. We all have something to learn from one another.

Think Outside
 the Classroom

Outdoor, field-based education is the ideal laboratory for learning. It's a place of freedom, curiosity, and inquiry.


Field science, like EPI's programs, expose students to the possibility of research outside of the confines of a classroom or a laboratory.
