The Odyssey Institute for Advanced and International Studies’ Project Kindle Program


The Odyssey Institute for Advanced and International Studies has been awarded a Project Kindle Program fellowship and will be representing the West Valley on an Earthwatch Institute expedition.

The world-wide organization, Earthwatch, seeks out highly motivated teachers who engage their students in hands-on scientific field expeditions. Jessica Sabo, an instructor at the Odyssey Institute for Advanced and International Studies, was awarded a 2018 Project Kindle Fellowship from the Earthwatch Institute. Mrs. Sabo and her Odyssey scholars will be following flammulated owls in Arizona from June 27th – July 3rd, 2018.

In addition to working in the field, Mrs. Sabo’s scholars will work on blog posts, journals and field surveys while on their expedition. Mrs. Sabo and the Odyssey scholars will return and share their experiences with other scholars, colleagues, family, and the community.

Earthwatch’s mission is to engage people worldwide in scientific field research and education to promote the understanding and action necessary for a sustainable environment. Each year, thousands of people assist scientists by collecting data on climate change, ocean health, wildlife, ecosystems, and sustainable cultures. Earthwatch strives to inspire and build a future generation of leaders who value the environment and prioritize it in their everyday choices.
