How did we go from renting DVDs from the store in the ‘ancient’ 1990s to being able to stream movies from anywhere at any time? Take students behind the scenes of the cloud to discover the components of computers, how data is stored at data centers, and the hardware and protocols that send data around the world at the speed of light. Along the way, students meet career professionals that work as a hardware engineer, fiber splicer, data center operations technician, and network engineer.
Imagine this - your students go to take a selfie but as they snap the picture, the phone displays “There is not enough available storage to take a photo.” They want to free up some storage by uploading photos to the cloud, but is it safe and sustainable? On this second tour, students explore the data center infrastructure, the physical and cybersecurity measures, and Amazon’s sustainability efforts that protect data and keep it green! Meet a data center engineering operator, control technician, cybersecurity specialist, and sustainability specialist to explore careers of the future.
From our online store to your doorstep, discover how computer science, state-of-the-art engineering, and incredible people deliver customer orders at Amazon. Meet a hardware research scientist, software development manager, and manager of solutions design team from Amazon Robotics. Available in both a K-5 and Grades 6+ version.
Join Amazon Future Engineer, Lockheed Martin, and Cisco from Johnson Space Center to learn about the amazing technology on board the Orion spacecraft in NASA’s Artemis I flight test. Explore careers of the future by meeting a system integration test engineer and software lead from Lockheed Martin, a technical leader and technical marketing engineer from Webex by Cisco, and software development engineers from Amazon’s Alexa.

  • I was just amazed of all the computer science is used to get a package from order to ship...I know a lot of people say that computers are putting people out of jobs, but this tour shows young people that is not true. It helped them to understand the jobs might look different, because humans have to be behind all the technology.

  • “I struggle to find STEM resources that are actually interesting to kids, that they might connect with and set a goal. I want to motivate them to graduate and have a career because we have a low graduation rate, and I think this tour could be part of a program that leads to that.”
    -K-12 Teacher
  • The video was very helpful, informational, and entertaining and I loved learning about how the packages are shipped.
  • I loved this experience! The videos were descriptive but not too heavy on technical terms, so my students were able to understand without issues. The addition of Kahoot trivia was genius! It kept my students so engaged, and we all learned a ton about Amazon! I also love the added teaching tool- the note catchers!
    Teacher, Old Forge, PA
  • It was really entertaining actually - I didn’t realize how high tech everything was. My favorite part was the workers actually telling us about themselves it really shows how they are people just like us that we can one day become.
  • The students absolutely loved this tour! [They] really liked pretending to ride along on the conveyor belts. After, students kept discussing the tour and how much they enjoyed the experience. As a teacher, I appreciate how easy it was to prepare for the lesson.
    Teacher, Linglestown, PA
  • My kids said things such as “This is so fun!,” “Can we do this more?,” and “I am learning so much! I did not know that!” They had such a great time working together, laughing, communicating, talking with one another and the teachers...The presenters were amazing! It was very engaging and well made!
    Teacher, Humboldt, CA
  • It was wonderful that you included both students and STEM professionals to make the experience both relatable and inspiring...[There] was so much new vocabulary that was introduced but explained in a way that the students could grasp it. The Alexa technology really got their attention because they use it in many of their homes.
