Action Plan

I will visit museums to learn more about Greek scientific inquiry and how that inquiry influenced Western civilizations. I will take photographs and collect information about climate.

Pre-Departure Preparation

I am a science teacher and would like to create lessons that compare climate issues that are affecting Greece with the climate issues affecting the US. For example, where I teach in New Jersey we are seeing an increase in precipitation as well as an increase in annual temperatures. In some preliminary climate research that I have conducted it seems that there is a decrease in precipitation in Greece. I would also use this experience to create lessons about scientific inquiry. The ancient Greeks were some of the first civilizations to try to understand the natural world around them.

Preparation During Travel

I will do more research about the climate issues that affect Greece.
