Our Approach

Learn With Us

Explore educational opportunities that ignite the spirit of exploration and bring the wonder of the world to learners.

National Geographic is where education meets exploration. We are transforming the learning experience for young people and the educators who reach them with the tools, resources, and support they need to feed their curiosity and become the explorers of tomorrow. Through immersive experiences, interactive lesson plans, maps, and other free resources – there are endless ways to learn with National Geographic.

The Explorer Mindset Learning Framework

The National Geographic Explorer Mindset Learning Framework underpins our education offerings and articulates the attitudes, skills, and knowledge for cultivating an Explorer’s Mindset.

Grosvenor Teacher Fellows

The Grosvenor Teacher Fellowship (GTF) is a professional development opportunity for pre-K–12 educators made possible through a collaboration between Lindblad Expeditions and the National Geographic Society. Through a comprehensive application process, we select exemplary educators to host aboard Lindblad Expeditions’ voyages for a life-changing, field-based experience.
