***By asking students to study not just the science, but the scientists as well, by showcasing how environmental scientists carry out their work—from the tropical rain forests along the equator to the ice deserts of Antarctica—we provide young people with authentic models of how to think scientifically, pose and refine research questions, and collect and analyze data.

Alex Bellini - Adventurer

Alex Bellini was born in Italy in 1978, in a small village amongst the Alps, and it was from the mountain that Alex was able to learn his first lesson: cling to the rock and hold on, always looking for a foothold even where the support seems to be missing.
It is this philosophy that led him in the last 14 years to explore the most hostile environments:
In 2001 he ran the Marathon de Sables.
In 2002 and 2003 he walked across Alaska pulling a sledge for a total of 2000km.
In 2005 he rowed alone 11.000 km across Mediterranean sea and Atlantic ocean in 227 days.
In 2008 he rowed alone 18.000 km across Pacific ocean, from Peru to Australia in 294 days.
In 2011 he ran 5300 km across United States in 70 days.
