To enhance virtual learning and ignite innovation, TeenDrive365 – a program created in partnership with Toyota and Discovery Education teaching safe driving habits for teens and new drivers through no-cost standards aligned digital content – offers students a series of interactive field trips that share with them remarkable experiences and amazing places, without ever leaving their home. These virtual field trips also help parents keep kids engaged and learning.

From the comfort of their living rooms, kids and families across the United States can take a ride into the future of mobility and experience innovations like artificial intelligence, automated driving, and the science of behind-vehicle safety. See all the virtual field trips available from TeenDrive365 and discover more no-cost digital learning resources that support virtual learning, like:
