The Expeditions Pioneer Program

Expeditions teams will visit selected schools around the UK, including London, Manchester, Birmingham, Liverpool, Leeds, Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and many more surrounding towns. Each team will bring a complete Expeditions kit with everything the teachers need to take their students on journeys to virtually 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 programme.

What are expeditions?

Expeditions is a virtual reality app built for the classroom. Each Expedition is comprised of descriptions and points of interests for the teacher, which makes it easy to incorporate into the curriculum. Using a tablet, teachers can guide their students using virtual reality viewers.

We worked with teachers and content partners from around the world to create more than 200 engaging journeys - making it easy to immerse students in entirely new experiences. Check out TES to see how other teachers are incorporating Expeditions into their lessons and bringing their subjects to life.

When will the expeditions pioneer program be near you?

The Expeditions Pioneer Programme is currently visiting schools and organisations across the UK.

We’ll visit more regions and schools as the Pioneer Programme progresses through the 2016 - 2017 school year.
