Virtual Field Trips

Virtual Field Trips

Bring the sea to your screen with free virtual field trips for K-12 students! Educators will receive a video program along with accompanying, downloadable activities. Additionally, you may opt to follow up your video program with a Zoom Q&A session with our education staff. Zoom Q&A sessions will be provided at no additional cost and will be offered on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays at 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. only (registration required). Teachers can also request to participate in Q&A sessions together; however, space in the Q&A session is limited. Smaller groups may be placed in a Q&A session along with another class or school. Zoom Q&A sessions will be limited to 40 minutes. We recommend that students prepare their questions ahead of time.
