Education and the Environment
Since his days growing up on a farm in southern Minnesota, Aaron has had a passion for geography, technology, education, and the environment. His projects focus on the importance of educating learners around the world about the environment, and he does so using interactive online learning environments. His work has taken him (and his learners) to the far reaches of the earth, exploring remote landscapes and connecting learners from vastly different cultures with each other. For over a decade Aaron has engaged millions of learners and educators annually with support from a dedicated team at the University of Minnesota along with a range of generous sponsors, funders, and collaborators. You can read more about each of the projects listed below on the individual project pages.
