National Geographic is responding to the widespread school closures with NatGeo@Home, a centralized digital resource for families looking to fill the gap with practical, educational, inspiring, and entertaining content designed to keep families connected to the natural world and the science behind it.
Currently available for free, NatGeo@Home combines the educational resources of the National Geographic Society with the fun and informational offerings of National Geographic Kids. The online hub is designed to help kids keep busy and continue learning. From boredom busters and games to videos and live daily talks with National Geographic Explorers, NatGeo@Home was developed by education and science journalists to help parents navigate the new normal of being parents and educators at the same time.
NatGeo@Home also provides access to the National Geographic Society’s Learn at Home portal. The site is also home to Explorer Classroom, which connects learners to National Geographic Explorers in live video talks each weekday at 2:00 p.m. EDT as they share experiences from around the world on topics including wildlife, ocean conservation, photography, space exploration, and more.
NatGeo@Home also provides families expert advice and valuable information to help navigate this challenging time, including access to National Geographic’s in-depth reporting on COVID-19.
NatGeo@Home is also included as part of #DisneyMagicMoments, a new website where families can find Disney content, stories, and resources from Marvel, Pixar, Star Wars, Walt Disney Animation Studios, National Geographic, Disney Parks, and more.
