Get your students involved in our flagship programs inside and outside the classroom
The GeoChallenge is a project-based, multilevel competition from the National Geographic Society that challenges student groups in grades four through eight across the United States to develop creative solutions to today’s urgent environmental problems. Combining science, geography, and communication skills, GeoChallenge teams take action on the critical issues facing our planet, just like National Geographic Explorers.
The National Geographic GeoBee is an annual competition based on geographic knowledge for public schools, private schools, homeschools in the United States and its territories, and Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DoDDS) around the world.
A program that beams Nat Geo explorers directly into classrooms from the field. Show your students that science, exploration, and conservation are alive outside their textbooks. Join a virtual field trip with a National Geographic Explorer!
National Geographic Explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to introduce these inspiring role models through our student matinee programs. Matinee presentations are approximately one hour and include a short question-and-answer session with the speaker. They occur in venues throughout the U.S. and some international locations.
