    Benjamin, together with his classmates, will go/is going to the Discovery Centre.

    Benjamin, together with his classmates, will go to the Discovery Centre.

    Benjamin, together with his classmates, is going to the Discovery Centre.

    The answer provided by the teacher is the second sentence. Is the first sentence wrong?

    Thanks.

    I see nothing wrong with #1. It is clear that this trip will, take place in the future.
    Number 2 is ambiguous. Benjamin may be on his way to the Centre now or he may go sometime in the future. A time reference would be helpful.
