In the Footsteps of Marco Polo


Explorer in Residence Program

"In the Footsteps of Marco Polo” is a groundbreaking educational experience based upon Explorer, Author and Filmmaker Denis Belliveau's incredible two year odyssey retracing the entire route of the famous 13th Century Venetian from Europe to China and back. With gripping storytelling, award winning photography and clips from his Emmy nominated PBS documentary film … "Denis provides a lens for students to see the world in real, different and meaningful ways...” - Jim Conti, The Pegasus School, Huntington Beach, CA. Our “Explorer-in-Residence’ programs offer inspirational live talks, individual classes and PBL workshops which transport students on a remarkable journey, offering unlimited potential for discovery and growth in the Humanities and STE(A)M skills. “Denis’s lessons are about recognizing and following an intellectual and spiritual passion; it’s about doing the hard work to perfect your craft; it’s about learning how to move and communicate across cultural and political boundaries.” Byron Stevens, The Stevenson School, Pebble Beach, CA.
