Destination Highlights

Our East Coast STEAM program invites students to discover the development of engineering and technology along with their modern-day uses across multiple industries. Each day is filled with interactive activities and hands-on workshops taught by field experts. From the bottom of the ocean to the depths of space, students experience various pioneering technologies that are used by scientists across the world.

Gain a new understanding of oceanography and marine biology. Interact with sea animals during a virtual underwater adventure through the Pacific Ocean at the National Geographic Encounter: Ocean Odyssey. While visiting the New England Aquarium, dissect a real squid to practice biology skills and learn to appreciate these legendary creatures.

Continue the experiential learning journey, taking in mind-blowing examples of technology and engineering. Venture onto a historic aircraft carrier to explore the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, which showcases the prototype orbiter that paved the way for NASA’s space shuttle program. Take part in a STEM program that involves students building and testing their own robotic arms! The Virtual Reality and Your Brain workshop at the Liberty Science Center allows students to use cutting-edge technology to learn about the brain’s perception of reality. Get insight into the engineering and robotic fields with interactive workshops at the MIT Museum, located on the prestigious MIT campus, and the Waterworks Museum.

Visit multiple National Historic Landmarks while exploring two of America’s oldest cities. See some of the most iconic skyscrapers and buildings during a walking tour of Midtown Manhattan. Take in one-of-a-kind views in Central Park, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty and from the top of the Empire State Building. In Boston, enjoy a piece of the city’s history by exploring Quincy Market, an almost 200-year-old building filled with eateries and shops. Perhaps try the famous clam chowder and Boston cream pie!
