Our live, STEM-focused Virtual Field Trips are led by a member of our Education team and are aligned to science standards.
Topics & Descriptions
Kindergarten: Little Engineers
Anyone can be an engineer, and it's never too early to start! Put your hands to work exploring, creating, and improving as you discover what's possible with a little bit of engineering know-how. The sky's the limit - literally!
C.K.E.5.1, SC.K.N.1.1, SC.K.N.1.4, SC.K.P.8.1, SC.K.P.12.1, MAFS.K.G.1.1,
Grades 1–2: Powerful Pollinators
Let’s get to the root of the problem! Use your STEM skills to design a pollination system and learn how plants grow. Allow your imagination to blossom!
SC.1.L.14.2, SC.2.L.16.1, SC.1.N.1.2, SC.1.P.8.1, SC.2.P.8.1, MAFS.1.G.1.1,

Grades 3–5: Roller Coaster Physics
Three ingredients are needed for any good roller coaster: gravity, energy, and engineers! Use the Engineering Design Process, learn about potential and kinetic energy, and try not to let friction slow you down as you build the most epic coaster ever!
SC.3.E.5.4, SC.3.N.1.2, SC.3.N.1.4, SC.3.N.1.5, SC.3.N.1.6, SC.3.N.3.2,

Grades 6–12: OSCSI
Step into the shoes of a forensic scientist - but watch your step! Clues are hidden around every corner, waiting to be discovered, collected, analyzed, and matched to a potential suspect. Can you use your science skills to figure out whodunnit?
SC.6.N.1.1, SC.6.N.1.4, SC.6.N.1.5, SC.7.N.1.1, SC.7.N.1.3, SC.7.N.1.5,

Virtual Family Science Night
Get the entire family involved during a fun, educational hands-on science program
Our Virtual Family Science Night will allow students, families, and teachers to engage in STEM learning from the comfort of their own home and encourage them to inspire science learning for life.
Step Into STEM Series
Provide your students continuous engagement
This 5-week Virtual Field Trip series allows students to dive deep into a content topic and develop their 21st-century skills as they work with one another to do hands-on experiments, engineering design challenges, and more!
All programs will use materials typically found in a home and a materials list PDF will be provided.
