Field Trip is an app by Google for Android and iPhone that helps you learn a bit more about the world we live in. It lists well-known and obscure points of interest that are close to your current location. From historical events to movie locations, there’s an interesting snippet of info for everyone.
To begin exploring, you first select the interests you’d like to be notified about. It does have offers and food places so you’ll probably want to deselect these if you’re on a school trip.
A neat feature of Field Trip is the ability to automatically read the information aloud about a location you’re passing. It only works if you have headphones plugged in or you’re connected to a bluetooth speaker/device. This could be great for long bus trips, learning about the surrounding areas while you drive past them. We’ve not tested this but it certainly sounds cool!
