Virtual Experiences - Field Trips for Aotearoa's Schools


LEARNZ is a programme of free virtual field trips, helping students access the inaccessible. Visit inspiring places around Aotearoa, Antarctica and beyond. Let us take you there!

Kia ora, welcome to LEARNZ virtual field trips.

At this time, while schools are closed, we know students and whānau are looking for new ways to learn. At LEARNZ, we have created activities that let you explore science, nature and local issues in your own backyard. Older students will be able to engage with these activities independently; younger students may need some help. Share with us on instagram #learnztrips

Teachers, we are here to support you especially during this challenging time. Please contact us for help with using LEARNZ.


LEARNZ offers over 200 engaging, free, online virtual experiences with direction and scaffolded support for teachers.

This was a great field trip. Students have been really inspired to find out more and are interested in what the scientists are trying to find out.
