Teachers are always looking for ways to enrich their students’ learning experiences, and extend education beyond the classroom.

Teachers can choose from in-person classroom visits, virtual field trips, Field Trip in a Box, or a Mission to the Moon.

Our new SEEd standards are naturally engaging and lend themselves beautifully to more authentic experiences such as field trips with experts in their field.
By funding our field trip, you will be helping to bring a new light to an entire grade level of student lives through the form of an amazing educational experience. For some students, experiences such as these can really push them towards success in school and a desire to learn.
