A Virtual Field Trip from the Museum of Science
Thursday, October 17, 2013 at 1:00 PM (EDT)
Join us from the Museum of Science in Boston, one of our nation's premier informal learning institutions. This event will explore the natural and human-made world through the lens of engineering. We'll be visiting STEMtastic exhibits like a Van de Graaff generator, a machine that makes indoor lightning. We'll also provide a sneak peak of the Hall of Human Life, a brand-new exhibit opening in November. Its role is to highlight breakthroughs in biology and biotechnology. Come with your questions ready as we spark your students' interest in a wide range of STEM fields.
No special equipment is needed to view this event online. All you need is an internet connected computer (and a way to share with students - projector and speakers). Students will have the chance to submit questions to ask live.
