Your "One-Stop-Shop" for Amazing Field Trips,

With or Without the Bus!

Traditional educational field trips on a bus are still on hold. In the meantime, we now list over 60 Virtual Field Trip Xperiences (VFTX) from 13 local arts and science venues for your students to learn STEAM topics from a unique perspective.  Whether your students are still learning from home or from the classroom, we are here to support our San Diego County teachers with amazing in-person and virtual field trips to museums, theatres, gardens, discovery centers, symphonies, fish and animal kingdoms, and more. These amazing VFTX are live, personal, interactive, educational, and fun. Visit our current VFTX list today.

And, when the buses start rolling again, we’ll be ready for you.  We currently list over 100 arts and science venues that are anxious to receive students again.  Check out the list today!

Virtual Field Trip Xperiences
and counting!

Check out the
Virtual Field Trip tab under Places to Go to see what's available.

Once you find a Virtual Field Trip that fits your teaching objectives, then apply for a grant to fund the workshop.  Your venue host will do everything they can to meet your schedule date and time and customize the content to meet your needs.  VFTXs are 45-60 minutes in length with some 15 and 30-minute versions.  You’ll be amazed by the experts who present “real-time and live” and take you to places that are difficult to get to on a typical visit. ​
