If your kids are lacking after school activities lately, you’re not alone. In response to a survey that showed up to 40 percent of after school activities have been shut down during the pandemic, Airbnb is launching brand new Online Experiences.
The collection of Field Trips is a way for kids to experience new things from their own home and to supplement their school curriculum. Airbnb is teaming up with several special celebs to kick off the program, and first on the list is Bill Nye, Olivia Wilde and Marley Dias.
Olivia Wilde is starting with “Socially Conscious Story Hour,” followed by “Decoding The Science of 2020” with Bill Nye (the science guy) and “How to be a Social Problem Solver” with the Dias family of #1000BlackGirlBooks.
In all, over 75+ extracurricular Online Experiences await and are hosted from over 20 countries around the world. Additionally, many activities are affiliated with Classroom Champions, a nonprofit that offers curriculum and mentorship experiences for kindergarteners through eighth graders with volunteer Olympians, Paralympians and professional athletes.
The Field Trip Online Experiences range from $7 to $100 and you can find the entire catalog at airbnb.com/fieldtrips. Not only are these programs educational, but they will help others, too. All proceeds from Nye’s experience will go to The Planetary Society and all proceeds for both Wilde and Dias’s experiences will go to Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco.
