Company Summary

Kaidad brings mobile, self-guided, educational field trips to the world. We start by identifying exciting academics and experts in geology, biology, ecology, history, etc., who are known for leading field trips already. We then sponsor exclusive field trips where we capture the experience as a multimedia package. This multimedia package is then made available on our mobile, GPS-enabled application, enabling users to take self-guided field trips.
