The Expeditions Pioneer Program


from the website:

The Expeditions Pioneer Program

Expeditions teams will visit selected schools around the world, including the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Canada, Singapore and Denmark. Each team will bring a complete Expeditions kit with everything the teachers need to take their students on journeys anywhere. The team will show teachers how Expeditions works and help set it up before class.

There is no charge or cost involved in the program.

What are expeditions?

Expeditions is a virtual reality platform built for the classroom. We worked with teachers and content partners from around the world to create more than 100 engaging journeys – making it easy to immerse students in entirely new experiences.

Bring expeditions to your school

Sign up to let us know you’d like the Expeditions Pioneer Program to stop at your school. We’ll try to  visit as many schools as we can, but spots are limited. We’ll notify you as soon as possible whether or not we are able to visit.

When will the expeditions pioneer program be near you?

The Expeditions Pioneer Program is currently visiting schools and organizations in the United States, Sweden and Canada.

We’ll visit more regions and schools as the Pioneer Program progresses through the 2015 – 2016 school year. If you don’t see your region listed below, please still let us know you’d like Expeditions at your school. We’ll try to visit the areas that demonstrate the most interest later in the year.
