The Tech You Need to Start Exploring

With Google Expeditions kits powered by Best Buy® Education, it’s easier than ever to take your students on virtual field trips or bring the world into the classroom. Best of all, Google Expeditions kits are built preconfigured for your school and are ready for you to start exploring immediately.

Google Expeditions virtual reality (VR) lets you take your students on hundreds of virtual reality trips without ever leaving the classroom. By simply looking through the viewer, students can swim beneath the ocean with sharks or visit the vastness of outer space.

And now, augmented reality (AR) is available. Imagine staring into the mouth of a volcano or getting up close with a strand of DNA. Google Expeditions AR allows teachers to bring the world into the classroom as students engage with this immersive new technology,

Here’s how AR works: Google Expeditions kits use Google’s AR technology to place 3D objects in the classroom for students to observe. Students can walk all around the objects, get up close to examine details, and step back to see the full picture.

With both the VR and AR versions, the included Teacher Tablet makes leading classroom discussions simple — no time-consuming research necessary — leaving more time for you to teach, and your students to engage.
