"This program makes it easy by feeding the kids and entertaining them with educational content during the bus ride. I enjoyed that kids got to see where our government officials work."

-Parent, Whitesboro ISD

"Great way to expose students to excellent experiences that they wouldn't have received with a traditional field trip."

-Administrator, Irving ISD

"Four hours on a bus and I never heard a kid ask 'Are we there yet?' Every child I asked. 'Did you have fun?' came back with an immediate 'Yes!'"
