The Northrop Grumman Foundation and EarthEcho International are seeking classroom teachers based in Melbourne to take a deep dive into plastics pollution in Port Phillip Bay.

The successful teachers from years 6 to 8  will join EarthEcho founder Philippe Cousteau, grandson of the legendary Jacques Cousteau, and local experts on EarthEcho Expedition: PlasticSeas, a unique opportunity that leverages exploration, innovation and engineering to involve teachers and students in developing solutions to plastics pollution.

The selected teachers will also join an international learning community as they learn about cutting-edge research.

Through the support of the Northrop Grumman Foundation, EarthEcho has reopened the application process to accept 10 additional teachers from the Melbourne area.

"EarthEcho Expeditions provide educators with a first-hand opportunity to experience environmental issues and meet the people who are developing solutions to solve them. Our focus with each expedition is to create place-based educational experiences that can be accessed globally through the work of our participating teachers," said Cousteau.

"Australia is home to some of our most important and endangered natural wonders. We are excited to partner with the Northrop Grumman Foundation on this year’s EarthEcho Expedition to examine ways to protect these treasures, and the people and communities who depend on them." 

Sandra Evers-Manly, president of the Northrop Grumman Foundation and Northrop Grumman vice president of global corporate responsibility, said the supporting of this initiative is a win for the science community in Australia.

"Northrop Grumman is thrilled to continue our support of EarthEcho International for a second year,” said Evers-Manly. "We look forward to working with educators in Australia to spark enthusiasm in science and the environment in their students."

Applications for the expedition close on 29 June. More information can be found here.
