About this Event

Join the Maritime Heritage expedition team of archaeologists, underwater photographers, and educators, led by Explorer Justin Dunnavant, to learn how they will create virtual 3D models of key underwater cultural heritage sites in Maui and Lānaʻi in order to document them and raise awareness for their preservation. 

Explorer Classroom is an interactive session that connects learners with National Geographic Explorers for short lessons and Q&A. After the featured Explorer’s lesson, your students will have a chance to have their questions answered in real time by submitting their questions into the YouTube chat bar! This event is recommended for student groups in grades 3-8 and will take place on October 19th @ 2pm ET (8am HST). A recording of the event will be available to watch on-demand on our YouTube channel if your students cannot attend live.

Teachers, we’ve also created a new interactive guide, Explorer Mindset in Action! Share this with your students to take them on a learning journey with each of our Explorers that sparks curiosity, builds empathy, and empowers ALL learners to take action. See the Educator Guide here. 

Register for more than one event in the series for a chance to win a special prize for your classroom! Join the other expedition teams on:

September 28th: Underwater Soundscapes

October 5th: Hawaii's Sharks 101

October 12th: CSI for the Ocean
