What's On Offer
Benefits of Participating in Trips
Teachers turn trips into mobile classrooms, instructing students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing.
The type of memories that Educational trips create, called “episodic memories,” helps children retain information for longer periods.
Students who go on Educational trips find that they want to learn more about the subjects on which the trip focused.
The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better.
Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit.
Kids get to visit a place to which they have never been before. This can be particularly advantageous to students who are less fortunate and don't have the opportunity to travel.
