LEARNZ virtual field trips are an engaging, curriculum-linked opportunity for students to experience some of New Zealand's special places.


They take students to remote and unique places where they meet and get to know people with fascinating careers in conservation and industry.

LEARNZ is free for teachers registered with the New Zealand Education Council teaching at state, integrated and registered private schools.
