The Home Depot Expands At-Home Learning Resources for Kids with Virtual Field Trips

The Home Depot Expands At-Home Learning Resources for Kids with Virtual Field Trips

New behind-the-scenes video content aims to support families and teachers with hundreds of free interactive educational projects online

PR Newswire

ATLANTA, Oct. 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Home Depot®, the world's largest home improvement retailer, today announced the new educational video series Virtual Field Trips will be added to its digital DIY workshops library, where Home Depot suppliers will provide kid-friendly, behind-the-scenes tours and insights into how products come to life and, eventually, make it to the retailer's shelves.

Our Virtual Field Trips provide fun, exclusive tours, curated specifically for young doers.

"Learning looks significantly different this year as parents search for new ways to teach and entertain at home," says Lisa DeStefano, vice president of brand marketing and creative for The Home Depot. "Starting with Bonnie Plants in October and Back to the Roots in November, our Virtual Field Trips provide fun, exclusive tours, curated specifically for young doers. From plant genetics to supply chain, we've broken down these stages into creative, interactive, digestible videos with accompanying DIY projects that bring the excitement of traditional field trips to family households."

The Home Depot is set to expand its partnership with Discovery Education in spring 2021 to bring more digital resources and projects to its Science Fair Central platform. Originally launched in 2017, Science Fair Central has provided over two million educators and students with STEAM project starters, information on scientific processes, material checklists and more. Discovery Education is the global leader in standards-aligned digital curriculum resources, engaging content and professional learning for K-12 classrooms. This upcoming expanded partnership further deepens The Home Depot's support of the country's youngest doers since the launch of its monthly kids workshops more than 20 years ago.

For access to the Virtual Field Trips, hundreds of family-friendly projects - from creating a cardboard box playhouse to making a solar oven – and other resources for kids, visit www.homedepot.com/kids
