Inspire the STEM minds of the future with tours of the world’s largest museum of science and technology and the largest particle physics laboratory.
A school trip to Europe delivers many educational and exciting learning opportunities. Experience science, technology, engineering and mathematics across great European countries as students tour iconic sites such as CERN - home of the Large Hadron Collider, the Northern Lights in Norway, Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie in Paris and the world’s largest museum of science and technology, Deutsches Museum, in Munich, Germany.
The European Union has pioneered many scientific discoveries and is at the forefront of STEM research around the world. Picture you and your students at CERN exploring the frontiers of knowledge at the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. See the 27-kilometre Hadron Collider for yourself and teach your students about the Higgs boson particle. Visit the breathtaking Airbus Factory and see firsthand all the hard work and testing it takes to build the Airbus A380. Explore a number of incredible museums in London where some amazing scientific discoveries took place. Travel to Cambridge and visit one of the most prestigious universities in the world.
Whether your students are aspiring architects, engineers or mathematicians, Europe offers a plethora of experiences for your students. Your Europe STEM school trip itinerary is fully customisable, and with a magnitude of options and activities on offer in Europe, this itinerary is best when tailored to your unique objectives.

At Educating Adventures we can tailor amazing itineraries to suit your faculty needs, and to appeal to a wide range of students. There are also plenty of amazing theme parks in Europe, (aside from Disneyland Paris), to further tempt your students, including Port Aventura in Barcelona, with its five themed areas, Europapark in Rust, Germany with 12 roller-coasters and France's Park Asterix, an alternative to Disneyland! Learn more about our STEM featured inclusions below.
Fleming discovered the antibiotic penicillin at St Mary's Hospital in 1928, a breakthrough that revolutionised medicine and earned him a Nobel Prize! The Faraday's museum is spread across three floors, the stuff of science is woven throughout the building. In fact, wherever you go, you'll discover the instruments and people that have made science work for the last two hundred years!
With over 28,000 exhibits, the Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany is the largest science museum in the world. It is home to some of the world's most contemporary masterpieces of science and art. Its new technologies section explores the concept of robot assistants and looks at the future of robotics and science in tomorrow's world. Don't miss the high-voltage demonstration where your students will get the chance to witness a voltage of about 270 kV, made visible by a discharge across a spark gap.
S’Cool LAB is a Physics Education Research facility at CERN. S'Cool LAB offers students and their teachers the chance to take part in hands-on & minds-on particle physics experiment sessions on-site at CERN. This amazing workshop gives students a glimpse of life working in a world-leading research institute! Your students will have the opportunity to engage with CERN teachers and scientists and apply their knowledge.
"As a result of this trip, we have three students considering picking up mechanical engineering at university, and a host of students considering STEM-related A-Levels. An action-packed, awe-inspiring week away. I can't wait to go back next year!"
"I believe the memories created on an international school trip can drastically enhance a student's entire learning experience. Being immersed in real-life learning is the most powerful educational experiences one can gain."
"The experience for us was personalised, accessible and our consultant was interested in us. This makes the world of difference when you're travelling with students"
“This trip has taken the top spot for my career highlights to date! The experiences and the way in which the students conducted themselves and embraced opportunities, even when they were out of their comfort zone, will stay with me forever. I don’t know if it gets better than this.”
Explore two of America's most famous cities, Washington and New York City! Further students' understanding of history and politics in the US, and its impact on the rest of the world.
