By 10/01/2020 06:25:00 PM

Airbnb has launched a new collection of Online Experiences - Field Trips - designed for parents to broaden their kids’ horizons and supplement their core curriculum.


According to a new study of parents,* as parents look to lead more activities from home, 86 percent worry that their children will miss out on important developmental opportunities if extracurriculars and after school activities are cancelled, and 71 percent are concerned that their child’s mental health will be impacted.

Through Airbnb’s newest collection of Online Experiences hosted by expert hosts, parents can now send their kids on a virtual trip of discovery with some of the world’s brightest and bravest.

Families can gain unique access to 75+ extracurricular Online Experiences hosted from over 20 countries around the world, including:

  • Go on a leopard safari in Sri Lanka
  • Discover Bueno Aires street art and sketch
  • Make a traditional Mexican piƱata
  • Uncover Pompeii with an archaeologist
  • Learn about origami and the essence of Japan
  • Dive under the sea with a shark scientist
  • Spend a day in Paris with a Parisian
  • Learn about space with an astronomer
  • Discover the science of swimming with an Olympic Medalist
  • Enjoy a K-pop concert & dance class for beginners
  • Make vegan brownies with the family
  • Experiment with colored pasta and chocolate volcanos
  • Learn sign language through games

The collection will also feature a number of activities affiliated with Classroom Champions, a nonprofit where volunteer Olympians, Paralympians and Professional Athletes offer a social and emotional based curriculum and mentorship experiences to K-8 classrooms.

Classroom Champions helps Olympians and Paralympians bring these experiences to life online, where you can now find them on Airbnb through Field Trips.

These Online Experiences will range from $7 to $100.

*Based on a sample of 2,000 responses to a voluntary September 2020 survey sent to a representative sample of primary caretakers of children between the ages of 6 and 14 years old. No payment or other incentive was provided in exchange for completing the survey.
