Celebrating 30 Years of CILC!

CILC_30thAnniversary_Logo_FinalToTM.pngEstablished in 1994, CILC has been a thought leader in the interactive virtual learning space since before “remote learning” and “virtual experiences” were catchphrases. Over the past three decades, CILC has developed hundreds of partnerships — with museums, zoos, science and performing arts centers — to provide kids and aging adults with access to limitless learning opportunities.

As CILC celebrates its 30th anniversary, the organization is humbled to hear from our members who share stories that reflect the three decades of success and the meaningful impact CILC has had on learners of all ages and their support teams from around the world.


CILC is also deeply thankful for its dedicated Content Providers, the architects of captivating virtual field trips. Your commitment to enriching experiences and fostering learning is truly appreciated, and CILC is grateful for the invaluable role you play in bringing education to life.
