Our tours challenge students by participating in project-based learning and applying STEM principles for students to think critically and analyse solutions. It is an opportunity to collaborate in a global classroom with experts in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics in exciting destinations.
How Can We Help
With over four decades working with trusted international partners, we have built our reputation on organising high quality and diverse learning opportunities for special interest groups, managing all the travel requirements, logistics and intricacies that are involved in ensuring a successful tour.
Our aim is to make the entire process as stress free as possible, from the early planning stages, through to the administration and execution of the actual tour. We provide authenticity, and we trust in our sources for inspiration and advice, ensuring each tour is meticulously planned and organised, reducing risk and worry, as well as achieving tour objectives on any budget.
Schools across Australia have chosen us time and again to organise their international educational tours. We consistently receive exceptional feedback from teachers, parents and students.
We’re here to help.
Singapore and India
Students gain knowledge and understanding of Asian societies, cultures, beliefs and environments, whilst in the learning area develop mathematical understanding in fields such as numbers, patterns, measurement, symmetry and statistics.
- Visit the Science Centre Singapore during your stay in the Lion City, participating in a 2-day STEM program of your choice, e.g., Workshop on Mathematical Modelling & Problem-Solving using examples in society in Singapore and its institutions.
- Jaipur: Capital of Rajasthan and known as “The Pink City”. Visit Jantar Mantar, an observatory built in the first half of the 18th century. Today it has 19 main astronomical instruments or groups of instruments. It features the world’s largest stone sundial and is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
- The Taj Mahal: Watch the sun rise over this magnificent monument experiencing the solitude, colours and mood. See mathematical patterns in every corner; use polygons to calculate volume and surface area; the modern patterns were ahead of geometry standards in Europe at the time.
Based in San Francisco, there is time to explore this beautiful city in northern California before heading to Silicon Valley, capital of the high-tech world and home to some of the world’s iconic tech companies. We then head south to Los Angeles, home of fun parks and museums which balances an informative couple of weeks.
- Intel Museum, Silicon Valley – go behind the scenes and see what it’s like inside an ultra-clean, high automated silicon chip factory, connecting with technologies that gives us new ways to work, learn, play and communicate.
- The Tech Museum of Innovation – a landmark for visitors seeing a glimpse of the most inventive place on the planet.
- Stanford University – one of the world’s leading research universities located in California’s Bay Area, one of the most intellectually dynamic and culturally diverse areas of the States.
- A visit to the Computer History Museum, dedicated to the preservation and celebration of computer history and home to the largest international collection of computing artefacts in the world, encompassing computer hardware, software, documentation, ephemera, photographs, oral histories and moving images.
- Experience a close-up look at Alcatraz island, the infamous federal penitentiary long off-limits to the public, and the history making 18-month occupation by Indians of All Tribes.
Greater London is a great place to explore STEM based activities for curious minds with visits that include code breaking at Bletchley Park to researching archaeological science at Stonehenge; then fly to Germany using Berlin as a base to seek out innovative sustainability in an urban environment.
- Experience a guided Jack the Ripper Walk and discover Sherlock Holmes’ London then participate in an interactive workshop that specialises in forensics and learn criminal investigation skills.
- Apply mathematic skills and try to break the code during a visit to Bletchley Park and see the Colossus computer that broke the Enigma code.
- Explore the iconic landmark of Stonehenge, learning the history of this famous circle and the challenges faced working with an archaeological scientist.
- Stand with one foot in the west and one in the east on the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory and see attractions that include a visit to the Harrison Clocks and discover the longitude problem and get to know the stars by an expert astronomer.
- Tour one of Berlin’s repurposed industrial complexes with an urban planner; learn about city agriculture with a field visit to a working farm and learn about the environment and technology at the Futurium Museum in Berlin.
- Extend your tour and include CERN in Switzerland, home to the Large Hadron Collider.
