All of us as fellow adventurers, sailors, hikers, mountain climbers, cyclists, kayakers, naturalists, photographers, outdoor educators and arm chair dreamers have the possibility of working together to make this voyage a reality. Howard Rice envisioned a solo long distance voyage into the deep wilds of Tierra del Fuego many years ago and followed through by building a boat, equipping it, shipping it to Chile and most importantly by taking time to interact with elementary school kids in a profound act of giving through interactive live stream lessons into classrooms. Howard heard the teachers involved speak highly of the program and the difference it made in classroom engagement and learning outcomes. As a former college professor he understood completely knowing full well that classroom engagement is key to successful learning. All good teachers spend considerable time refining how they keep students engaged and are constantly seeking new methods for engagement and this one seems to have struck a cord that calls for more.
Howard was so inspired and thrilled to be able to provide this service that he decided to push on and fulfill a personal dream of sailing a tiny boat in some of the most intriguing and beautiful places on earth and he has invited the world elementary education to join him at no cost. Lofty Goal!........................Yes but one that is completely achievable if each of us lends support.
