Three Miami University Project Dragonfly associates have been selected to receive this year’s Lindblad Expeditions and National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellowships.

Shasta Bray, Rebecca Detrich and Laura Schetter are among 35 educators from the U.S. and Canada to be selected in recognition of their commitment to geographic education.

They will embark on Lindblad voyages aboard the National Geographic Explorer and the National Geographic Endeavour. The one-of-a-kind expedition will provide hands-on professional development and will allow the team to bring immersive geographic learning experiences back to their classrooms and communities.

Project Dragonfly reaches millions of people each year through inquiry-driven learning media, public exhibits and graduate programs worldwide. Dragonfly is housed in the biology department at Miami.
