Amazon Robotics Fulfilment Centre Tour

A virtual school trip for every future engineer. Discover how computer science, state-of-the-art engineering, and incredible people deliver customer orders at Amazon.

Amazon Robotics Fulfilment Centre Tour

On this virtual school trip, students will explore an Amazon package's path, from the online store to their doorstep. The experience focuses on how computer science and engineering contribute to a package's journey, on the different technologies used, and on the career roles involved.

With the engaging, interactive Kahoot, and downloadable teacher resources, the Amazon Fulfilment Centre Tour is easy to use for teachers and brings technology to life for students.

Hosting a tour provides the best experience for classrooms, allowing teachers to run their own tour and enable students to compete against their classmates as they explore the technology and careers of the future. Choose either a tour for primary or secondary students. Each tour has 2 ways to watch: A full tour (45 - 60 min) or split in half to tour over multiple days (25 - 30 min each day).
