More Information

Teams from the Expeditions Pioneer Program visit participating schools from all around the world such as the United states, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Brazil, Canada, Singapore, and Denmark. Teachers will receive an Expedition Kit with everything the teacher will need to take their students on exciting new journeys. Teachers will receive training and assistance setting up the program in their classrooms on how Expeditions works.

Expeditions are virtual reality videos built for the classroom. Expedition team members have worked with teachers from around the world to create over 100 journeys, immersing students in culture and visual representations of the subjects in their learning.

The virtual reality videos can guide up to 50 students while wearing virtual reality viewers. The panoramic field trips are led either by guides or teachers trough a tablet.
