Grand Canyon rafting trip

Every year, the National Center for Science Education takes a group of 24 science advocates on a rafting trip down the Grand Canyon to explore its natural wonders and learn more about the science of the canyon. This year they are offering two teacher scholarships for the trip!

Who is eligible?

The two winners will receive airfare, lodging before and after the trip, as well as a rafting trip of a lifetime- all for free!

The National Center for Science Education is looking for teachers who are committed to the accurate and thorough teaching of evolution, climate change, deep time, and the nature of science. Applicants should (or have the potential to) play a leadership role in promoting the teaching of good science within their community.


Apply by January 5, 2016

The deadline for applications is January 5, 2016 (midnight, Pacific Standard Time).

One of last year's winning teachers wrote a blog about his experience in the canyon and the wealth of information he brought back to his classroom and community.
