Go on an Airbnb Field Trip with Bill Nye the Science Guy

Global experiences right from home!

Danielle Valente

How many times have you heard that this school year is "unlike any other"? Probably quite a few. 

To fill in the gaps of an unusual schedule and fewer after-school program selections, Airbnb wants to take kids on a field trip, and Bill Nye the Science Guy is here to help. Your little scholars can take advantage of 75+ worldly experiences from the comfort of the couch—a street art walk through Buenos Aires ($10 and up), an African penguin sketch class ($14 and up) and even a deep dive under the sea with a shark scientist ($19), among others.  

"We want everyone, kids especially, to be curious,” Nye said in a statement. “Asking questions and seeking answers is how we make discoveries and learn about the world around us. We’ll encourage questions and share facts with a new generation about some of this year’s hottest topics in science. It’ll be a blast." 

He will be hosting a particularly timely and engaging class: "Decoding the Science of 2020."
