Equity School Travel Offers Students A Chance To See Technology’s Future

02 January, 2014: Equity School Travel, one of the UK’s leading companies when it comes to organised and safe school trips to fulfil foreign study requirements, offers an intellectually stimulating school trip to France, within the empowering confines of the Futuroscope. 

The company understands the immense value of exposing young minds to state-of-the-art technologies and when it comes to learning, little else beats an actual experience and encounter with high-end technology. Experiences like this give students a chance to witness the workings of all the latest inventions and can have a great positive effect on their overall outlook and personal life goals. That is why one of the company’s leading destinations is Futuroscope in France. 

Those who are fulfilling their foreign study requirements will discover that much can actually be learned from the Futuroscope experience. Students will find their intellect stimulated, their curiosity piqued and their life-long ambitions awakened. Futuroscope presents even the most complex technologies in easy-to-understand installations and multimedia exhibits, for example, visitors can virtually explore the Louisiana wetlands and interact with potential threats to the environment. Through special equipment, they will also experience what it is like to be visually impaired. 

Among the latest features at the Futuroscope is the 4D adventure experience called ‘Arthur’. This is a 3D animation viewed on a huge IMAX dome screen whose in-film motion is synchronised with every aspect of the theatre, enabling the audience to palpably and physically experience the effects. Futuroscope also gives students a chance to ‘dance’ with robots in a vast ballroom where 10 moving robot arms engage visitors in a sweeping, exhilarating waltz seven metres up in the air. 

What’s more, Futuroscope offers Discovery Packs (downloadable at the website) designed to further enhance the foreign study learning experience of any group visiting the establishment. Moreover, those who book a school trip before December 20th, 2013, for trips scheduled between August 1st, 2014 and July 31st, 2015, can enjoy a huge £800 saving for the whole group.
