WorldStrides 150WorldStrides believes in the power of experiential travel to enrich students’ lives. For nearly 50 years, WorldStrides has been partnering with teachers to create unforgettable learning adventures for students.  On a WorldStrides DiscoverNow! science trip, students see science come alive with the perfect balance of action-packed adventure and hands-on learning. These programs provide a unique platform to showcase nature, physics, and exploration, and for many, inspire future career choices in science.

Florida – Splash into Science or Habitat H2O
Splash into Science pairs life science lessons with action-packed adventure in Miami and the Florida Keys. Highlights include the chance to swim with dolphins, hike in the Everglades, snorkel in Florida’s own barrier reef, and visit a hospital especially for sea turtles.  Habitat H2O explores the Gulf Coast of Florida where students swim with manatees, kayak through the mangroves, and snorkel in Rainbow River.  Both programs involve working with wildlife experts in a variety of lab activities.

BCA students have been traveling to Florida over Easter break for over a dozen years to engage in experiential learning with WorldStrides.  They report that this experience has changed their lives! 

I enjoyed snorkeling down Rainbow River because the water was so clear I could see the many varieties of fish!

One of my favorite things was dissecting a shark!  

I had an awesome time in Key West, Florida. We got to swim with manatees!

 We collected water samples to study.

It was the most fun and educational trip ever!
