Given recent dramatic events in the world economy, and the US presidential elections, history is happening before our very eyes! It is an opportune time to take your students on a tour of the United States...the world’s biggest economy.
With the strong Australian dollar, affordable packages for your students are available with the tour costs of teaching staff incorporated for free.
Wanderers Australia has taken a number of economics and cultural tours to the US in recent years for a variety of schools, where students have the opportunity to visit some of the world economy’s most important cities.
Tours can incorporate very important economic hubs , concentrating on the events of the past few months, as well as those etched in history.
We can start you in Washington, where you can take your students to the Smithsonian Institute, which is the world’s largest museum complex and research organisation. It is composed of 19 different museums, 9 research centres and the National Zoo.
After the Smithsonian Institute, you will tour all the major sites of Washington DC, including the White House, the Pentagon, the Capitol Building, & the Arlington National Memorial. You can also see pro sports events such as NBA, NHL, NFL and MLB live.
From an economics perspective, Wanderers Australia will arrange visits to such important institutions such as the US Federal Reserve to discuss the impact of Monetary Policy on the economy, as well as sessions with speakers from the World Bank and International Monetary Fund, to discuss the impact of 3rd world debt, and global financial security and assisting developing nations.
You can then head to New York, one of the world’s biggest and greatest cities, where you can visit The Museum of American Finance, walk down Wall Street, and take in all the sites such as Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building Central Park, Ground Zero, and 5th Avenue. A visit and tour of the United Nations can also be incorporated.
