* A learning expedition is an inquiry-based project initiated by a team of Explorers and guided by an Explorer guide.Learning expeditions we support can be any of following type or a mixture of them:
  • a project that young people develop and implement, without or within a framework of a concept and method developed by teachers or partners
  • a concept for a group of such kind of learners projects and their implementation
  • a project developing the method together for such kind of activities, including at least one implementation.
* A learning expedition can be different depending on:
  • the maturity of the learner/ the level of guidance needed
  • the complexity of the topic to be explored or method used
  • the purpose eg. acquiring knowledge and skills, creating something or contributing to general interest
* A learning expedition can not:
  • be only virtual
  • be biased with a commercial interest
