Join this unique Virtual FAM trip to a Finnish school! Tickets only for 20 participants! During this trip, you will observe how a Croatian class virtually visits a Finnish class, and the students get to know each other and each other’s culture during one day (3 hours). In our Virtual Sister School Visits, the schools don’t have to be official sister schools; what we offer is an agile way to connect two schools/classrooms interested in learning together with students from another country.
