Can’t come to The Field Museum? Let us bring The Field experience to your classroom. Virtual Visits from The Field extends science directly into your classroom through LIVE video broadcasts from The Field Museum.

  • Meet and chat with a scientist in real time.
  • Visit a behind-the-scenes lab.

Virtual Visits from The Field gives students an unparalleled chance to connect the research occurring at the Museum with learning in their own classroom. Using a 60-minute live broadcast, students can see, hear, and interact with researchers during a behind-the-scenes “visit” to the Museum’s state-of-the-art laboratory. All programs are NGSS aligned.
