National Geographic is training the explorers of tomorrow, where kids will be immersed in a world of wonder thanks to a series of videos filled with activities and adventures.

What’s Happening:

  • Kids ages 8-11 can be led by National Geographic Explorers as they embark on adventures that can take them to space, ancient civilizations, and deep sea creatures that vary from week-to-week.
  • Kids will be immersed in a world of wonder where they will be engaged in streamed videos to embark on a series of experiments, activities, and games. Presented by an engaging, energetic host, kids will spend up to two hours each day solving mysteries, breaking codes, making discoveries and creating an action plan for becoming the explorers of tomorrow.
  • Every week, your explorer of tomorrow will have access to:
    • Missions – play games, conduct experiments, and complete craft activities
    • Challenges – solve puzzles, decode ciphers, and untangle word scrambles
    • A Themed Mystery – use clues discovered throughout the week to illuminate the answers in a virtual escape room and earn a digital badge representing Explorer traits

  • Registration is open now, with the price starting at $99.00 with the opportunity to bundle and save. Participants can choose up to 11 weeks of adventures, and they have the ability to purchase any week on or before 9/3/2021.

  • National Geographic Live Explorer Academy Adventures features streamable video content that is pre-recorded and available on-demand. The videos and content are not available for download (unless otherwise expressly stated), and can only be streamed as a one-way broadcast. There will be no live interaction between the hosts, guest Explorers, or other users. This experience is not a live engagement. The videos and other content will be available for you and your child to view for a limited time—currently scheduled until December 31, 2021.
  • Kids should set aside approximately 2 hours per day to participate in these activities. Each day of content consists of approximately 45 minutes of video content, plus approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes of self-directed “activity” time for a registrant, during which the registrant completes self-directed puzzles and activities, for a total of approximately 2 hours per day, or a total of approximately 8 hours per themed week.
