Google expands its Expeditions Pioneer Program

Google has announced an expansion of its Expeditions Pioneer Program, which lets children go on virtual trips without having to leave the classroom. Expeditions, which makes use of virtual reality through various headsets, like Google Cardboard, allows educators to take their students on various adventures, showing them different parts of the world from their classrooms.

In the US, the expansion hits 15 new cities, which include Alexandria, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Detroit, Indianapolis, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Orlando, Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City and Washington DC. Outside of the US, Expeditions will make its way to three new countries which are Canada (specifically Toronto), Denmark and Singapore.

More than 100,000 students have already used Expeditions in their classroom with an overwhelmingly positive experience, and Google hopes to continue that expansion for more children to be able to use it.
