Via Ferrata

06:00 AM 04:00 PM

At this year’s Live Curious, Go Beyond Tech and Innovation Conference, we’re offering an outdoor educational experience that will truly push you to ‘go beyond’. One of the best adventure experiences in Mexico, the Via Ferrata (Italian for ‘iron road’) or Route Vertigo is a vertical mountain route equipped with fixed cables, steel anchors, ladders, suspension bridges, repels, and a 200m zipline 2000 feet above the ground. Experiencing The Via Ferrata route is a perfect introduction to rock climbing without the technical skill and movement techniques required in traditional rock climbing. We’ll be teaming up with Abuelo Expediciones who bring years of experience and the highest safety standards. This PD experience is a perfect adventure for outdoor education enthusiasts, PE teachers, and adventurous educators alike. We’ll be tying this experience to teacher and student wellness, social/emotional learning, and risk-taking in education. Join us in conquering one of the most coveted and highest peaks, just minutes from AFSM, in the Huasteca Ecological Park in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, just minutes away from ASFM.

Keynote: Let's Build An Elevator To The Moon

08:00 AM 09:00 AM MSHS Auditorium

As children, anything is possible and our imaginations span as wide as the universe. As we grow, the wonder of childhood fades, and the realities of the world limit our dreams. Let’s explore what we need to find possibility within the impossible and maybe even build an elevator to the moon!
