Google’s Expeditions Pioneers Program, a free program that enables teachers to take their students on virtual field trips, is coming to New Orleans!
Google is bringing the Pioneer Program to schools in each of the regions they visit. Schools who sign up get an Expeditions kit, with everything they need for an immersive adventure: ASUS smartphones, a tablet for the teacher, a router and viewers that turn phones into virtual reality headsets. Some kits include Mattel’s new View-Master virtual reality viewers, others include Google Cardboard. Teachers can choose from more than 120 tours of places such as Antarctica, the Acropolis or the Borneo Rainforest – and the list keeps growing as Google works with their content partners to create more.
There is no charge or cost involved in the program.
Want to participate in the program? Sign up here if your school has a minimum of 6 interested teachers. In order to take as many students as possible on an Expedition, Google will visit schools showing the most interest first.
The program will be in New Orleans November 30-December 18 to hand out Expeditions kit to schools that have signed up. Secure your spot by signing up today!
