The impact of travel on STEM classrooms
Educational travel isn’t just for art and history teachers.
If anything, the experiential learning that happens on our tours directly reflects the theories practiced in your classroom. Science, technology, engineering, and math impact the way billions of people live—so don’t you want to show students the world they’ll be creating solutions for?
Project-based learning powered by students
All our tours come with weShare, a personalized learning experience that helps students make connections to what you’re teaching out in the world. It also gives them the option to create a reflective project for academic credit. See the STEM topics students have investigated while traveling with us.

Professional development for you
Another way EF can impact your STEM classroom? By fostering your personal and professional growth. You can earn up to 45 professional learning hours or points when you lead a tour with us, or as many as six graduate-level university credits.
Discover the personal impact of travel
We could talk all day about the benefits of educational travel, but we’ll give the floor to a few students instead. Their stories help illustrate how travel changes everything.
“In today’s world, students need to be more globally minded. Removing the four walls of a traditional classroom and offering a traveling classroom has a much bigger impact on my students’ learning.”
