Fun, Interactive STEAM field trips—Delivered Virtually

Our live, kit-based STEAM field trips bring expert instructors to your classroom or students—wherever their learning is happening.

It’s easy—we bring the Innovation Hub to you!

We know how challenging it is to keep educational offerings fun and engaging and happening #IRL or “in real life” as the kids say.

That’s why we developed a special kit-based field trip program for Arkansas students designed to engage hands and minds wherever your students are learning.

Our interactive, live virtual experiences expose students to a variety of creative possibilities—from technology to art to entrepreneurial ventures. Students don’t just learn—they engage and are encouraged to investigate and explore!

And we made it easy for teachers, too! Our one-hour field trips are tied to state standards and taught by experts. We provide the instructors and kits. You provide the students. It’s that simple.
