Why

Memories of school Educational trips are among the most prominent of the formative years, largely because they are a welcome break in the routine for both students and teachers. While their purpose is essentially to educate, they can also be a fun bonding experience for everyone involved.

Reinforcement- The trip can reinforce what a teacher has been instructing in class about a subject and help students understand the topic better.
Engagement- Teachers turn trips into mobile classrooms, instructing students to collect data, then quizzing them or assigning a project based on what they learned during the outing.
Socialization- Taking students into a new environment gives them the experience of traveling in a group and teaches them to be respectful of the locations they visit.
Exposure- Kids get to visit a place to which they have never been before.
Curiosity- Students who go on Educational trips find that they want to learn more about the subjects on which the trip is focused.
Retention- The type of memories that Educational trips create, called “episodic memories,” helps children retain information for longer periods.

Importance

Educational trips are important in many ways.– Going on a Educational  trip means more than simply leaving the Institute. The importance of Educational trips includes giving students the chance to build closer bonds with their classmates, experience new environments and enjoy a day away from the classroom.
New Sights- When students and teachers are together outside the classroom, new educational environments and experiences are possible. Students may have the opportunity to observe many things that are not available at Institute, including exotic wildlife, rare flora & Fauna etc.

Bonding- Getting away from the everyday atmosphere of the classroom gives students an opportunity to spend time with each other in a new environment. They may be able to connect on more of a personal level without the structure of the normal day. Students may be able to spend much of the Educational  trip day in small groups, observing, chatting and learning about each other.
Informal Learning Environment- Educational trips provide valuable educational opportunities away from the classroom, without using textbooks and other tools used in a normal setting. Students on Educational trips can often learn while having fun in a more informal environment.

Fun- No matter how much students learn during a Educational  trip, their favorite memories may be based on their enjoyment of the day. Educational trips are always highly anticipated. Students will have fun with their friends and they also may return to the Institute with a renewed focus on their studies

Benefits

Educational trips can give students exposure to places they might not otherwise visit – many schools, camps and institutions offer Educational trips for students to spend several hours or days outside of the classroom. Whatever their scope, Educational trips can offer many advantages to the students.

Perspective – Part of how students benefit from Educational trips is by gaining new perspectives on the world. This is especially true for more extensive Educational trips where students travel farther away from home. By coming into direct contact with a different environment or even a new culture or language, students can better understand their place in the community and develop an openness to differences in others.

Variety – Educational trips also function to put some variety into otherwise regimented lesson plans. Instead of spending every day in the classroom, students get to learn in a new environment with new instructors. Educational trips also may give students a chance to interact with students from other Institutes.
Learning Styles – Educational trips will often cater to more than one learning style, making them excellent teaching tools for certain students. Educational trips offer an uncommon opportunity to perform hands-on learning.
Classroom Supplement – The specialists who lead school groups on Educational trips also may be able to provide professional insight from advanced study or direct experience that teachers could never provide alone.

Reward – Teachers encourage good behavior and motivate students to work hard with the prospect of an Educational trip as a reward.
