Virtual Field Trips should be fun, educational, AND interactive.
We've seen a lot of "virtual field trips" that are basically just watching a video or looking at pictures --- in our mind, that's NOT a Virtual Field Trip.
After all, when students go on real field trips, they get their hands dirty, exploring, learning, and investigating. Our Virtual Field Trips do the same thing.
For example, on our Civil War Virtual Field Trip, we incorporate live storytelling, food, trivia, and hands-on activities, like decoding ciphers and learning Civil War battle techniques from our stage combat choreographer.

What Do Our Student Groups Think?
I run a summer program for high school seniors, and was struggling to find fun and educational activities for them particularly in the current era of social distancing. The tour itself was great! Super interactive and provided breakout opportunities for the kids to get to know each other better. The guides were energetic and engaging, and did an excellent job. All the students raved about how much fun they had, and how much they learned.
