Google Expeditions


Imagine visiting the bottom of the sea or the surface of Mars in an afternoon. With Google Expeditions, teachers can take their classes on immersive virtual journeys to bring their lessons to life.

Google Expeditions is a virtual reality platform built for the classroom. The programme has worked with teachers and content partners from around the world to create more than 100 engaging journeys – making it easy to immerse students in entirely new experiences.

Expeditions are guided tours of places schools buses can’t go. They are comprised of virtual reality panoramas and are led by a guide or teacher.

To support the ‘Expeditions Pioneer Programme’, Expeditions teams will visit selected schools around the world, starting with the United States, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Brazil. Each team will bring a complete Expeditions kit with everything the teachers need to take their pupils on journeys anywhere. The team will show teachers how Expeditions works and help to set it up before the lesson.

There is no charge or cost involved in the programme.
