Educators & Students

For over two decades educators and students have explored the Amazon and the ACTS canopy walkway in their quest to understand more about this critical global resource.

ACTS is the site of the 1999 Jason Project X’s expedition to the Amazon involving a satellite broadcast that reached thousands of school children in North America and Europe.

The canopy walkway and surrounding forest provide access to all levels of the rainforest – from the forest floor to the tops of emergent trees – offering exceptional opportunities for field study and exploration. From monitoring micro climates, to setting up observational field studies of orchid bees, to studying mixed flocks of birds in the canopy, ACTS provides the perfect setting for educators and students to explore tropical ecology, participate in field studies, and even conduct independent research.

ACTS educational programming for teacher and student groups is coordinated primarily by our partner organization, Amazon Rainforest Workshops.
