Earth Adventure is a nonprofit organization with the mission to is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve K-12 science, geography, and standards-based aptitudes and competencies through supplemental learning activities and programs which enhance classroom curriculum.

Earth Adventure utilizes our unique tools the Earth Balloon® Portable Classroom and the Earth Walk® Floor Map to create enthusiasm and promote a sense of discovery among students. All programs are standards-based and grade level appropriate.

The Earth Balloon is a highly detailed twenty foot model of the earth using state of the art, high resolution satellite imagery. Students explore and learn geography and science concepts as they travel around our planet on a mission of discovery. The most exciting part of the Earth Balloon experience is when students go inside the Earth Balloon to learn geography concepts in a new and exciting way. The Earth Balloon requires an indoor area with a 17 foot ceiling.

Earth Walk is a 16' X 20' foot floor map of the continental United States featuring high-resolution satellite imagery. Students explore and learn geography and science concepts while traveling throughout the various regions of our Country.

A certified Earth Adventure teacher will travel to your school and facilitate 6-12 programs per day.
