Blue Zones

One of a growing number of sites that try to link students with real life scientists and real life environmental issues.

Blue Zones - Quest for the true fountain of youth

 The Blue Zones Quest is an educational project that gives students the
opportunity to direct our team of scientists, explorers, and
journalists as they travel to Blue Zones™ places where people
live the longest, healthiest lives. Backed by the National Geographic
Society and the National Institutes on Aging, the goal of our Quest is
to figure out how those elders live such long, healthy lives. But
unlike most scientific expeditions, students won’t just read reports
and watch videos. They actually vote each day to direct the scientists
where to look for clues to answer our questions. We believe that
students learn and retain the most knowledge when they are challenged
and put in control of their learning environment.
