Updates to 2021-22 Field Trips
At this time, we are scheduling virtual field trips only. We will
transition to in-person options when conditions allow us to do so. Our
goal is to support your science classroom by offering flexible, distance
learning options to meet your changing needs.
Our NYSSLS aligned programs are updated to include activities that lend
themselves best to distance learning. Our instructors are ready to remotely
lead your students through each lesson using materials you have in the classroom
and web-based applications when appropriate. If students are connecting from
home, we’ll provide a suggested list of materials commonly found at home.
Additionally, our programs can be presented as demonstrations if access to
physical materials is a hardship. We will guide you in preparing for the virtual
field trip regardless of your classroom status.
Please review our updated program menu for
Activities, grades 1-5, and Exploration Labs grades 5-12. Contact us to
schedule your virtual field trip and to discuss your specific needs.
