About Canopy Classroom

Canopy Classroom is our STEM based workshop that takes place on our zipline tour. Educators will engage in a cross-disciplinary exploration of a variety of subjects related to the construction and operation of a zip line canopy tour course. Key topics include using the scientific method to learn about the physics and engineering that we utilize in daily operations including gravity, friction, momentum, and engineering principles. We will go over the ecological impact of tree-supported courses and how we design according to the biology of trees. We will also explore how the canopy tour experience lends itself to creative expression in the form of creative writing, photography, and other artistic endeavors. Handouts and experiments for classroom use will be provided.

  • Limited to 16 participants.
  • Open only to members of NEOEA.
  • No lunch break.
