Learning partners

A digital resource that provides educators access to thousands of high-quality field trips that are easy to plan and offered at minimal cost to schools.

Public school programming offers increasingly less exposure to hands-on real-world experiences outside of the classroom in the arts, humanities and sciences, further widening the opportunity gap.

Expanding enrichment opportunities

We provide educators with access to thousands of imaginative, high-quality programs and field trips that can easily be planned with little cost to the schools. These enrichment opportunities are provided to public educators for elementary youth.

Online resource portal

We developed a user-friendly, online portal for educators to find programs or field trips that support their academic goals. All programs are vetted for quality, including a listing of TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills) for each educational experience.

Hands-On Learning

“This program was exactly what I was hoping for. We engaged in a self-guided tour. The students were able to enhance their knowledge of animal habitats and learn some new ones as well.”

— Teacher in Fall 2019, Jimmie Tyler Brashear Elementary
