With the Expeditions app, classrooms have no boundaries
With VR and AR, teachers are no longer limited by the space of the classroom. VR lets you explore the world virtually while AR brings abstract concepts to life—allowing teachers to guide students through collections of 360° scenes and 3D objects, pointing out interesting sites and artifacts along the way.
Minimal setup for maximum engagement
It’s never been easier to take your students on an adventure of a lifetime in VR or AR. Download the free app to explore more.
Hundreds of adventures for the classroom
Expeditions explore history, science, the arts, and the natural world. Whether you’re roaming with dinosaurs or taking a look at Renaissance sculptures, there’s something amazing to explore for every subject.
Unique experiences within reach
The Expeditions app and Cardboard viewer and Cardboard Camera were built to bring immersive experiences to as many schools as possible.
Inspiring students' creativity and imagination
By helping your students visualize information in a new way, you can positively impact their ability to retain information.
