Airstream will offer a “Learn from Anywhere” educational collection in partnership with Teacher Created Materials (TCM).
Considered by the company as a landmark partnership, Airstream owners and fans who home school or “road school” young students now can access a curated collection of workbooks, daily practice sheets and learning resources as part of the Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) program.

“While the pandemic has created challenges for us all, Airstreamers are in a unique position for socially distanced travel in this new normal,” President and CEO Bob Wheeler stated. “Our partnership with Teacher Created Materials gives parents the resources for hitting the road while keeping kids engaged in their learning. Why just read about the Grand Canyon, when you can get out there and see it for yourself?”
The available collection includes learning resources within key STEAM subjects.
“For example, for those on the road, students can explore math and geometry by charting the area and perimeter of Yosemite National Park, or develop literacy and problem-solving skills in Yellowstone,” Airstream stated. “Additionally, the ‘180 Days’ products (180 Days of Geography, 180 Days of Language, etc.), provide students with daily practice to help solidify skills and improve retention.”
With more people working from home and students enrolled in online learning, Airstream said it saw an opportunity to provide materials for longer, experience-driven trips with family members looking to aid their children’s education. The Airstream and TCM partnership allowed the companies to offer supplemental tools for homeschoolers, students in traditional environments and those on the road wanting to stay up-to-date on skills.
TCM is an industry leader in award-winning educational resources. Founded in 1977, the company sources materials that are created by teachers for teachers and parents, the company stated.
