A well-designed, outside the classroom, hands-on learning experience increases lesson retention and increases engagement.
We all have fond memories of a field trip we took when we were young. It gave us a sense of connection to the real world, of how we might fit in. Most likely it strengthened our commitment to learn more. It might have given us a better appreciation for others in our community...
At Field Trip Factory, we are passionate about what experiential-learning programs bring to education. They are a simple solution to a number of challenges: Knowledge Retention. Student Engagement. Understanding of How Things Work. Personal Connections. Thriving Communities.
As leaders in experience-based education, we work hard to bring important lessons to life for students of all ages. Over the last 20 years, our programs have touched more than 12 million lives across the U.S. and Canada. By participating in hands-on activities within real-world environments, participants experience learning in a whole new way.
Trained community volunteers with relevant professional experience are leading these highly engaging programs. All our programs are grade/age appropriate and align with national, state or provincial learning standards. Because students are having fun, their retention of important classroom information is improved. They are also learning about subjects that can impact their daily lives and how their community really works.
Our long term goal is to offer the widest variety of quality experience-based learning programs for children of all ages that are extremely easy to select, book & manage. To achieve our vision, we team up with Partners who care deeply about their community and want to actively support educators. Thanks to their ongoing support, we are able to offer all our experiential programs for FREE.
