Expedition Sponsors 

An expedition requires financial assistance to pay for things like food, lodging, transportation, clothing, and specialized expedition equipment. For our expedition, most of the money comes from us. The money we earn from our school assembly programs and selling our pictures to book and magazine publishers helps us pay for our expeditions. We also have sponsors who support our work in two ways: getting students excited about the nature, science, technology and providing us with some of the needed equipment. They are listed below. Check them out to learn more about the equipment they make.

Think about past and present explorers and adventurers. Did they have any sponsors or supporters? Who were their sponsors? Why did the sponsors want to help those people and their expeditions? Do you think those explorers and adventurers could have made their expeditions without the help of their sponsors?
