Academic & Non-Academic Field Trips
Inspiring Students To Aspire To Be Their Best
We listened to you!! Students can now participate in non-academic field trips in addition to our academic (STEAM) field trips. We can also work with you to deliver a hybrid experience.

Finally, students can do a field trip and not just take one. For most students, the fun part of the field trip is the bus ride. Even some teachers and chaperones remember more about their time on the bus than they remember about the trip's program and purpose. At GenerateTech, our field trip is all about doing, so there's never any forgetting! Listening to the requests of teachers and school administrators, there are now three options for a field trip: A hands-on 100% academic (STEAM) field trip, a 100% non-academic (empowering entertainment) field trip, or a hybrid (50% academic and 50% non-academic) field trip. Whichever option you choose, a field trip to our facility will impact the life of each student in ways that cannot be articulated. We feel strongly that the next Bill Gates or Steve Jobs will enter our state-of-the-art facility either on a field trip or as a part of our all-inclusive hands-on STEAM-based after-school program. Strategically, our non-academic field trips will reduce work and classroom stress, counter the effects of boredom, boost teacher and student morale, promote team building and social bonding skills, reset students' attitudes, and stimulate future interest in learning. We hope you will seriously consider giving your students The GenerateTech Field Trip Experience. The cost per student typically ranges from $20 - $25, and our new training facility and field trip options allow us to serve 100 plus students at once.

our non-academic field trips feature the following activities
Fortnite Shooting Range
Video game enthusiast or not, this Fortnite-theme shooting game is going to delight everyone – from the rookie shooters to the marksmen. Players have the choice of using a bow with foam-tip arrows or Nerf guns. With moving targets to shoot down, luck will not be on anyone’s side. The game can be played individually or in teams, adding an element of competition and teamwork to the experience. Students will use clapper boards with motivational words to signal the start of a shooting round and to push their teammates to remain focused. It’s like they are directing and starring in their own movie. Be on the lookout to see whose shooting scene is going to be the best.
Wipeout Eliminator is a multiplayer, super-action game, which challenges participants’ stamina, agility, and reflexes. Participants will jump inside an octagon to play in teams as they do their best to avoid being eliminated by the unpredictable rotating arms of the octagon. Even introverts will become engaged and start to interact with others in order to win – the kind of mindset that is needed for individual and team success. As participants play inside the octagon, their teammates will be cheering them on with motivational placards. Those being encouraged will do the same when its their time to root for and support their teammates. It’s two-way motivation for success in a fast-pace environment.
Baseball Batting Cage
The Batter-Up Baseball inflatable game is an exciting and interactive activity that is perfect for seasoned players and those just starting out. This empowering entertainment activity is designed to simulate the experience of playing baseball in a fun and safe way. It allows players to practice their batting skills as though they were auditioning for the Atlanta Braves or New York Yankees. Before getting their game faces on and squaring off against each other, students will choose from a stack of ‘Baseball Cards’ to learn new and inspiring information about the game, its history and players. For younger participants, the game attendant will share a stimulating fact or two with them before the start of play. Set up for left hand and right hand batters, anyone can easily score a home run.
Double Axe Throw
When it comes to axe throwing, whether you are from the country-side or not, seasoned axe throwers will tell you that double is best. The two targets mean that two players can go up against each other for fun and fulfillment – the kind of fulfillment that comes from winning! Like all other activities, the double Axe Throw is designed with safety in mind, featuring soft foam axes that are easy to grip and throw. It is made of high-quality material to withstand even the most enthusiastic axe throwers. As participants gather around to play, they will notice motivational messages (MM) lining the interior walls of the inflatable. Some of these MM can be your own messaging to help communicate your goals, key information and the big picture about student success to participants.
Played all over the world and loved by all, soccer remains one of the most celebrated and practiced skill-based games. Participants will get into a competitive mode and mood as they test their ball control and kicking skills. In pairs, they will take their shots at the back wall to score goals. Once a goal shot is made, the ball returns to the other player’s lane as the two players try to outscore each other. It is a game of timing and patience as much as it is a game of fun. When a player misses 3 shots in succession, they will take a ‘Reading Motivational Flash Card’ timeout before their next attempt. Soccer Fever trains one’s muscles, the mind, and provides motivation.
Have you heard of Ninja Warrior? Some of the best competitors and winners have a background in rock climbing. We may very well mold the next Ninja Warrior at an ARISE event. This moderate 20 feet carnival-style Tiki Island Climbing Wall is just what rookie climbers need to show that they can ascend to any height without fear. As participants climb, they will pass ‘rocks’ that have motivational messages (MM), and when they get to the top, they will retrieve a MM which they will read out aloud to inspire themselves and others. Safety is our top priority, and this Inflatable climbing wall is designed with safety features such as a soft-landing pad and secure harnesses to ensure that participants can climb with confidence, which is needed for success in academics and life.
