Google’s Take Your Classroom to Work Day takes kids on virtual field trips

Google's Take Your Classroom to Work Day promo

Take Your Child to Work Day gives a sense of what parents’ jobs are like, but Google knows that kids can’t always afford go to the office. Accordingly, the company is bringing the office to the kids through its first-ever Take Your Classroom to Work Day. The April 24th initiative uses Hangouts video chats to show workplaces that even the luckiest students might never see in person, such as the Chicago Bulls’ locker room and the Stan Winston School of Special Effects. The first internet-based field trips are already underway, but you can check out Google’s schedule for upcoming excursions. Suffice it to say that we’re a little jealous — where were these educational adventures when we were in school?
