Alcoa Scholars Post-Trip Projects

The Alcoa Scholars Program aims to connect high school students from all over the world to some of earth’s most beautiful protected lands. Teens from countries all over the world engage in hands-on science experiments and research, outdoor experiential learning, and social emotional learning activities designed to immerse them in nature and sustainability issues while they also learn about each other’s cultures and backgrounds. 

Our 2017 Alcoa Scholars Program took place in two locations with two different groups of students in Shenandoah National Park and Yosemite National Park.

The Scholars were asked to share their experiences through a post-trip project. We got all sorts of submissions including blogs, videos, websites and even community presentations to name a few. See some of our favorite post-trip projects that 2017 Alcoa Scholars have put together below!
