Why visit Orlando?
The theme parks
Orlando has more theme parks and entertainment attractions than anywhere else in the world. But it also offers some incredible opportunities for school science trips.
Visits to theme parks offer plenty of opportunities to explore the physics of rollercoasters – and that’s science most teenagers can get on board with!
You can visit Disney parks and take part in the Disney Youth Educational Series (YES programme). On this programme, your students can learn about the properties of motion or the evolution of technology.
Or head to Universal, to enjoy their STEAM programmes, which include a session on why it’s physics we can thank for making rollercoasters so thrilling!
Discover space exploration
And, of course, you can’t travel all the way to Orlando for a school science trip without taking the time to visit the Kennedy Space Center, where your students can learn all about the fascinating history of space exploration and the science involved in space travel.
You’ll enjoy a tour of the centre, one of the most important centres for the US space programme and, if you’re really lucky, you may even have the unforgettable opportunity to witness a launch!
The incredible biodiversity
Florida is also home to the Everglades, an area of tropical wetlands that boasts a unique ecosystem.
On your school trip to Orlando, Florida, we can arrange for you and your students to take an airboat trip to see some of the incredible wildlife in the famous Everglades National Park. If you’re lucky, you may see bald eagles, racoons, armadillos, turtles and alligators.
This experience will not only give your students the opportunity to see some animals in the wild that they wouldn’t otherwise be able to see, but it will also show students the importance of preserving habitats. They’ll have the opportunity to learn how this particular area is very finely balanced and needs to be managed in order to protect the wildlife that lives there.
