As part of its unique approach, Edison offers its students engaging learning opportunities called Edison Excursions. On these unique educational trips, small groups of students and teachers travel to outside destinations, where they immerse themselves in an environment or an experience, exploring outside the classroom and across the curriculum. The groups also stay over for one or two nights, providing time for bonding and social activities.
Each excursion gives students the chance to discover what makes the Pacific Northwest unique. Activities during the trips may focus on science, geography, geology, marine science, history, drama and higher learning; they also meet the varying needs of students with audio, visual and kinesthetic learning styles.
Past excursions have included:
Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Southern Oregon University
Nehalem Bay and Tillamook
Oregon Coast Aquarium
Columbia River Gorge
High Desert Museum
