Refreshing Educational Offerings at World of Coca-Cola

May 14, 2024

Come and see what’s new at World of Coca-Cola! A trip to Atlanta just wouldn’t be complete without a visit.

Where else can you stroll through over 135 years of history, get an inside look at Coca-Cola beverage creation, discover the connection between your sense of smell and your sense of taste, take a photo with the 7-foot-tall Coca-Cola Polar Bear and close out your visit with some tasty beverages from around the world?

World of Coca-Cola has so many things to offer educational groups. The new immersive experiences provide a unique educational opportunity for guests to learn the story behind the iconic beverage brand, the science of beverage innovation, as well as scent categories and sensory connections.

At Beverage Lab, guests can look inside the Coca-Cola beverage process, sample famous beverages from the vault, and shape the future of beverage development by tasting unreleased formulas and providing feedback to help develop the next big hit! At Scent Discovery, guests can learn about scent categories, uncover new beverage favorites based on their scent profiles, and participate in a competitive guessing game to learn how scent connects to memories and transports us to special places! By the end of the visit, guests will gain insights into why they enjoy specific drinks and receive personalized Coca-Cola recommendations to try in the Taste It! sampling area.

Teacher Toolkit

As one of downtown Atlanta’s anchor attractions, World of Coca-Cola welcomes over one million guests each year. Included in that number are countless students whose teachers have utilized World of Coca-Cola’s Teacher Toolkit to enhance the educational value of their visit. Exciting new additions to the experience offer educators even more opportunities to link their class visit to curriculum standards.

With over 1,200 pieces of memorabilia and artifacts chronicling the history of The Coca-Cola Company and the evolution of its marketing across various exhibit areas, a class trip to World of Coca-Cola might seem a bit overwhelming for an educator needing to ensure their students receive a bit of education along with their entertainment. That’s why the Teacher Toolkit is so valuable!

Created in partnership with educational writers, World of Coca-Cola’s Teacher Toolkit provides educators with lesson plans as well as pre- and post-visit activities for grades 8 through 12, linking their class trip to educational standards in Social Studies and English/Language Arts. The toolkit also includes a Green Guide highlighting many aspects of World of Coca-Cola’s design, construction and operation that allowed the attraction to achieve Gold LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Certification. A module for African American History Month spotlights many pieces of memorabilia and artifacts showcased in the attraction and may be used throughout the year.
