At National Geographic, we believe in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. We teach kids about the world and how it works, empowering them to succeed and make it a better place. Our National Geographic explorers, photographers, filmmakers, and scientists embody the importance of living curious, responsible, and empowered lives. We’re proud to present these inspiring role models through our student matinees.

Here’s what educators have to say:

“Because of this presentation, many students expressed their ambitions as future marine biologists, photojournalists, and environmentalists.”

“I greatly value these learning experiences that happen outside of the classroom that inspire my students to follow their dreams and educate them about being good stewards of the environment.”
