Provide hands-on and relevant learning experiences for students through our STEM Travel Programs!

Take your education beyond the classroom and out into our amazing world. Though our STEM Travel Programs, sharpen students’ skills in science, technology, engineering, and math in a real-life, interactive, environment. For example:

  • Become mindful of nature in either Yosemite National Park or Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Park. As a result, gain a deeper understanding of how science works in the world.
  • Join culinary masters in either Northern or Southern California where students can learn about food science, fun recipes, and be able to cook their own meals.
  • Venture to Phoenix, Arizona for the opportunity to engage in a wide variety of hands-on experiences at the Crayola Experience, the Arizona State Capitol Museum, and the Arizona Science Center.

These destinations and travel options are within reach. However, you can also choose your own destination. We can customize anything to your preference so you can experience the unique opportunities to learn while traveling!
