This onsite Professional Development program takes place in Maui, Hawaii. From the summit of Haleakalā to Maui's colorful coral reefs, the Valley Isle has so much to teach us about endemic species, biodiversity, and our shared connection to the land. Learn to design inquiry-driven, interactive lesson plans for your students as you assist our Hawaiian partners with ongoing research and conservation projects. Come away with a better understanding of environmental literacy and the tools to foster the next generation of environmental stewards.


- Camp on Maui's North or West shores
- Contribute to ongoing research on fish & reef health
- Help restore a traditional Hawaiian village or harvest taro

Interested participants can receive 4 graduate credits through the University of Montana for participating in this course. Separate registration and tuition fee are required.


What will you gain?

On all of EPI's Professional Development programs, we teach progressive, inquiry-based methods that will allow you to introduce more exploration into your classroom while still meeting those testing requirements. Best of all, we model the methods we teach. Our programs take you into the field. You'll work with scientists and wildlife. This is your chance to explore. You'll return to the classroom with a new set of tools, ideas, and lessons that will inspire your students. All trainings are aligned with the NGSS.
