Virtual Field Trips

Our live, STEM-focused virtual field trips are led by a member of our education team and are aligned to science standards.

Bring our educational offerings to your classroom digitally using Webex or your preferred virtual platform. All you’ll need to connect with us is an internet connection and a computer with a webcam!

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!

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!

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!

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?

Coming Soon: Pompeii: The Immortal City virtual field trip options for Grades 3–12.
