Bring Students Grades 2-12 on a Learning Adventure

National Geographic Explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to present these inspiring role models through our student matinees.

Matinee presentations are approximately one hour long and include a short question and answer session with the speaker after their talk. National Geographic Live Student Matinees take place in various venues around the United States and in some international locations.
