The Explorers Club

The Explorers Club is an international multidisciplinary professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. Since its inception in 1904, the Club has served as a meeting point and unifying force for explorers and scientists worldwide.

Headquartered in New York City, The Explorers Club promotes the scientific exploration of land, sea, air, and space by supporting research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences. The Explorers Club houses Arctic and Antarctic artefacts related to Polar Exploration, Shackleton and ‘Endurance’.

In partnerships with the global education nonprofit Reach the World, The Explorers Club will be connecting classrooms to the expedition in a virtual exchange program. The Weddell Sea Expedition will reach a large and diverse network of North American youth in both urban and rural settings, inspiring the next generation of young explorers.

Reach the World makes the benefits of travel accessible to classrooms, inspiring youth to become curious, confident and compassionate global citizens. For more information please visit  http://explore.reachtheworld.org/.
