The most extreme classroom on the planet
In 2018 three explorers will attempt to summit Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth with the peak 8848 metres above sea level.
Their reason is to create the biggest and most extreme classroom on the planet – involving ONE MILLION STUDENTS worldwide.
Through EDUCATION the team will create unique and inspiring online lesson plans and an interactive route map allowing students to follow the explorers throughout the journey whilst at the same time connecting all schools together.
An ENVIRONMENTAL Global Experiment will collect clean air data from around the world on one map of the earth. This will highlight areas with poor air quality and the data collected can then be used to influence political views on climate change.
Visual Skype COMMUNICATION will link the explorers in real time from the mountain directly into the classrooms worldwide. Daily interactive social media updates will allow students to converse with each other and exchange ideas with the explorers.
Finally, the One Million Voices DOCUMENTARY featuring students will be shown on route through the valleys, monasteries, schools and villages that line the route to Everest in the highest cinema on earth as part of a major 8848 documentaries.
