Google Expeditions

  • At Columbus City Schools we make extraordinary educational opportunities, everyday!  We have THREE Google Expeditions Kit for classroom use.  You can swim with sharks, visit outer space, turn the classroom into a museum, and more without leaving the classroom. Where will they take you?

    Google Expeditions are collections of virtual reality panoramas - 360° photo spheres and 3D images - annotated with details, points of interest and questions that make them easy to integrate into curriculum already used in schools.  The kit includes all the hardware for a class to explore the world and beyond using the Google Expeditions App.  We have THREE 30 student kits that can be signed out for use to staff. The kit comes in a large heavy case on wheels (17"x26"x45", 125+ lbs).  Below are some important logistical guidelines that have been created so that we can use the Kits as fairly and equitably as possible.  *You must be signed into your CCS Google Account to access the calendar sheet and request form.
