Library exhibits, bio blitzes, apps, and educational materials bring “Backyard Wilderness” off the screen and into communities nationwide. The initiative encourages participants to get outside and observe the natural world around them.
As the film thrills worldwide audiences, educational materials allow students to dig deeper into Henry Walter Bates’ incredible story of discovery. An NSF-funded research project also explores the effectiveness of giant screen content for STEM learning.
“The Farthest” reaches tens of thousands through free public screenings and panels featuring the scientists and engineers who brought the 40+ year mission to life. Free copies of the film are distributed to educators and libraries nationwide.
