VIRTUAL EXCURSION PROGRAMS

Experience the magic of CERES virtually in the comfort of your own school/home!

We’re bringing CERES to you with live educator-delivered student webinars, plus access to hands-on activities, videos, resources and games to help your students with their learning. Our Virtual Excursion programs, come with a student webinar and school teacher guide, instructions for activities to do before and after your webinar.

There’s loads of topics you can choose from including energy and climate change, biodiversity, waste, urban farming, plus more.

The online program designed by CERES was excellent for the students as it was both interesting and engaging. The instructor delivered the teaching and learning activities professionally and they perfectly supported our current unit of work being studied in class. Our boys loved the interactive nature of the sessions and they promoted much discussion afterwards as well. We would highly recommend CERES and we look forward to taking part in future online opportunities!
