Follow us! This expedition will see the i2P team pass near mountains and volcanoes, across the world’s largest salt flat and an area incredibly rich in minerals, past a train graveyard that is a relic of the past, and visit La Paz, the world’s most elevated capital city – all the while bringing thousands of students along for the ride!
The Expedition Bolivia team will set out on May 12. After acclimatizing to the elevation for a few days in the capital of Bolivia, La Paz, the team will set out for south western Bolivia and the Salar De Uyuni. Once en route daily updates from the field will be posted on the i2P website. These posts will include:
Daily video blogs from the five youth ambassadors.
A daily question & answer quiz linked to the chemistry curriculum.
Daily webcasts that link the expedition team to participating schools, and allow school children to interact live with expedition team members.
