Programs for Teens and Classes
Behind-the-scenes experiences help teens better understand the world they live in and their potential contribution.
All programs easily integrate to existing lesson plans, implicate multiple disciplines (STEM, social sciences, languages), and are fun, hands-on learning experiences.
How to navigate this page: Browse the programs below and select the ones that best support your lesson plans.
We will then work together to arrange a tailored experience for your students.
Field Trips for Specific Subjects
Teachers often want support for specific subjects (like trigonometry and immigration) or projects (like creating a film). Whatever the case, there is a real, inspiring program we will design for your group.
Global Issue Field Trips
Global issues can be felt and debated in society's behind-the-scenes. Debate cybersecurity at data centres, clearcutting at pulp & paper mills, oil exploration at refineries and more, for any issue.
Industry Field Trips
The world is changing, and quickly. Meet the shakers and movers from each major industry, from pharma to aerospace. Teens learn how the big picture relates to their personal, school and future lives.
