Virtual Adventures Opening Windows into Science Careers

Teachers and students can go on a scientific adventure from their own classroom. Hosted by a live museum educator from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Virtual Science Academy classes offer award-winning, two-way interactive videoconferencing.

The engaging programs are offered nationally and internationally, for children aged 3 to 5 and in grades 1–8. Some programming is available in both English and Spanish. 1:1 classrooms, all remote, and hybrid groups are welcome to participate. The cost for a Virtual Science Academy class is $140; the cost for each subsequent class scheduled for the same day is $120. Needs-based scholarships are available.

Plus: The museum also hosts a free monthly broadcast series, Scientists in Action, which brings students in grades 4–8, via webinar format, to behind-the-scenes labs or field environments where they get to see scientists’ current work and ask questions of the experts in real-time. During these 45-minute Q&A sessions, scientists share new discoveries, demystify the scientific process, answer students’ questions, and open a window into science careers. Students can connect conveniently from anywhere using a computer, webcam, and the internet. The Scientists in Action programs are free each month.
