Use your Kindles to access and attend the Slime in Space Virtual Field Trip. Nickelodeon teamed up with two astronauts on the International Space Station to demonstrate how slime reacts to microgravity and had kids reproduce those same demonstrations back here on Earth. It makes for an amazing 15-minute virtual field trip!
The Seattle Aquarium is the ninth largest aquarium in the U.S. by attendance and among the top five paid visitor attractions in the Puget Sound region. Puget Sound is a sound of the Pacific Northwest, an inlet of the Pacific Ocean, and part of the Salish Sea. The Seattle Aquarium has hosted over 27 million visitors and provided marine conservation education to two million school children. We’re proud to be accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the Pacific Ocean on your 30 minute guided tour.
This week we are going to take a planetarium virtual journey through our solar system to answer questions about the sun and its significance to our daily lives. Our main focus is answering the following questions:
* What would Earth be like without the Sun?
* What would happen to Earth if the Sun suddenly disappeared?
* How long could humans survive on Earth if the Sun disappeared?
This week we are going to take an exciting virtual field trip to explore the Grand Canyon in Arizona. Unlike the other virtual field trips, the trip to the Grand Canyon will be at a point of view angle. That means you will feel like you are physically at the Grand Canyon. You will see dramatic views of the canyon and a fantastic sunset over the canyon. I must warn you that if you are afraid of heights don’t look over the edge. The Grand Canyon is proof the water is very powerful. Did you know that the Grand Canyon was formed by the Colorado River through erosion over millions of years?
This week we are going to take an exciting virtual field trip to explore the San Diego Zoo. For more than a century, people have flocked to the San Diego Zoo to discover animals. The Zoo connects people with wildlife to inspire a passion for nature. The Zoo and Safari Park are protected havens where breeding and caring for endangered species can help protect against extinction. They provide opportunities for animal behavior and health studies that would be difficult, if not impossible, to conduct in the wild. The results of these studies are shared with other zoos and wildlife parks, and help guide animal conservation efforts in field projects. The expertise of the animal care staff, veterinarians, nutritionists, horticulturists, and conservation scientists who work withour animals at the Zoo and Safari Park is an invaluable asset that can inform challenges animals face in the wild. Please enjoy visiting your favorite zoo animal up close and personal by live web cams through the provided link.
The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History virtual tours allow visitors to take self-guided, room-by-room tours of select exhibits and areas within the museum from their desktop or mobile device. Visitors can also access select collections and research areas at our satellite support and research stations as well as past exhibits no longer on display. Students can take advantage of the virtual tour with me or you can explore the museum on your own. Please view my Introduction video as I navigate through the Natural History Museum demonstrating all the tips and tricks of the museum.
