Teachers: Take your students on a Field Trip to an Apple Store

Take your students on a Field Trip to an Apple Store for an unforgettable learning experience. On their Field Trip, students can create something amazing right on the spot. Or they can bring in a project they’ve already created and turn the Apple Store into a theater, sharing their achievements with parents, teachers, and friends. No matter which option you choose, everyone will have a great time.

Your students can use the Mac computers in the Apple Store to create photo albums in iPhoto, edit video in iMovie, build websites in iWeb, make Keynote presentations, or even compose their own songs in GarageBand.

If your students have already created amazing projects on Macs or PCs in school or at home, they can share them with others in the store and get the recognition they deserve for their talented work.

Whether your students create a project from scratch or come to showcase the remarkable work they’ve already created, Apple provides all the hardware and software they need. Trainers and Specialists will be there to answer questions and give expert, on-the-spot advice. Every participating student gets a free T-Shirt. Apple will even supply personalized invitations for parents, teachers, and friends.

Apple Store Field Trips are open to K-12 students in the U.S. and Canada. Each event can accommodate up to 25 students.

A Field Trip lasts one hour. To schedule more time, contact a Specialist.

Apple offers Field Trips from September 22 to November 21. You can request up to three date options. A Specialist will contact you within 48 hours to confirm the details of your event.

  1. Well, that’s one way for a teacher to get an Apple.

    When I was in High School, a field trip was a day picking shrooms…

    Genius: “For the last time, kid, this ain’t a real bar. Yeah, I feel smarter when I drink, too. No, we don’t even have apple juice”.

  2. “Now only if there was a apple store to go to,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,”
    Time for Apple to setup a Mobile Apple Store or Apple Genius on Wheel (A Mac class room with large screen display in a trailer)?

  3. Microsoft’s trip to Redmon…
    Your students can play with devices and take a guess what the device is supposed to do (because microsoft stole it from another company).
    Also, they can became expert in Copier machines.

  4. Viktor watch what you are saying there. Microsoft hires brilliant minds so there’s a great potiential that innovative ideas comes out of brilliant minds. I would not recommend teachers taking a class on a field trip to the Apple store because it’s a waste of time and not very educational. What does a Apple store have to do with education I guess nothing since there’s not much to see around here. Besides I would recommend teachers taking a field trip to Microsoft campus at Redmond, Seattle and explore the innovated prototypes they have in the research labs and have a better understanding how Microsoft is changing the world one step at a time. ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  5. Yes, teachers everywhere -with their extremely limited budget, extremely limited time, high stakes tests up their butts, mountains of Student Expectations to cover, Loads of paperwork to fill out, lessons to plan, papers to grade, and 140 screaming and/or hormone filled kids to care for- should take time out of their schedules to go to an Apple Store for a field trip

  6. I mean “trips” not “tripe”. But then again, those trips could also be described as tripe i guess! Lol! ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />
