What is Amazon Virtual Fulfillment Centre Tours?
Inspire your students in STEM and immerse them in real-world learning without having to leave the classroom with the school trip style Virtual Fulfilment Centre tours from Amazon.
On the tours, students will discover how computer science, state-of-the-art engineering and Amazon’s incredible employees all play a critical part in delivering customer orders every day. The tours provide a snapshot into the inner workings of Amazon Fulfilment Centres and cover key engineering concepts that demonstrate what a career in STEM could look like for them. Students are also exposed to fun facts about how packages get from the delivery room to their doorstep. Each tour lasts 45 minutes and is followed by a live 15-minute Q&A session with an Amazon employee.
Teachers can download a free resource-based toolkit which can be incorporated into any classroom activity before or after the virtual tour. It enables them to engage their students using interactive curriculum-linked slides, worksheets and videos, covering all the key concepts, from learning outcomes to core computer science vocabulary.
The tours are part of Amazon Future Engineer, a purpose-led childhood-to-career programme built to inspire, educate and enable children and young adults from lower-income backgrounds to try computer science.
