Airstream has announced a landmark partnership with educational materials company Teacher Created Materials on a “Learn from Anywhere” educational collection, geared toward allowing students and anyone else to learn on the road.
Airstream said in its announcement that its owners and fans who “road-school” or “home-school” young students can now keep them engaged and educated with a curated collection of workbooks and daily practice sheets, as well as Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math (STEAM) learning resources which are now available for purchase via Airstream’s e-commerce site, Airstream Supply Co.
The nomadic, off-grid lifestyle has surged in popularity over the past decade but has greatly accelerated since the pandemic. With more people working from home – and more students enrolling in online learning – many Airstreamer parents are hitting the road for lengthy, experience-rich trips with their families and are looking for resources to aid in their children’s education. This partnership is based on delivering an answer to that need.
“While the pandemic has created challenges for us all, Airstreamers are in a unique position for socially distanced travel in this new normal,” said Airstream President and CEO Bob Wheeler. “Our partnership with Teacher Created Materials gives parents the resources for hitting the road while keeping kids engaged in their learning. Why just read about the Grand Canyon, when you can get out there and see it for yourself?”
This collection includes a variety of learning resources that incorporate the key STEAM subjects. For example, for those on the road, students can explore math and geometry by charting the area and perimeter of Yosemite National Park or develop literacy and problem-solving skills in Yellowstone. Additionally, the “180 Days” products (180 Days of Geography, 180 Days of Language, etc.), provide students with daily practice to help solidify skills and improve retention.
Teacher Created Materials, founded in 1977, is a provider of innovative, award-winning educational resources.
