For the past year, 14 students have participated in the Geology Expedition Selective. These students planned the trip of a lifetime to learn more about geology in Hawaii.
On June 19th, the students accompanied by their teacher Toni Sindelar and seven adults traveled to the big island. Once there, they hiked to beaches, picked up plastic trash, and explored lava tubes, flowers, and wildlife of the area. The students worked throughout the year to raise funds to ensure everyone who wanted to attend could do so.
In keeping with the Discovery philosophy, this was entirely a student driven trip. The idea came from a student, and all the activities and meals were planned by the students. It was an adventure they won't soon forget!
