Your "One-Stop-Shop" for Amazing Field Trips,
With or Without the Bus!
On-site Field Trips, On a Bus, Are Back!
Our local arts and science venues are anxiously awaiting the arrival of K-12 students this school year after a very challenging year. Visit the “Places to Go” on our website to explore the over 100 museums, theaters, discovery centers, botanical gardens, ocean and animal kingdoms and much more to supplement your in-classroom STEAM education.
Virtual Field Trips Will Also Return!
With the support of several arts and science venues, ABX created a list of sixty Virtual Field Trip Xperiences for teachers to choose from this past year while the traditional field trips on a bus were put on hold. This past year, 163 teachers received funding for over 6500 students across 20 school districts to bring the venue to the classroom and distance learners “live, interactive and personal.” Teachers rated the program a 4.8 out of 5 for excellence. Teacher and venue feedback proved that the Virtual Field Trip Xperience was very valuable for their student’s education. As Ms. Libby of Bayfront Charter High School said,
“It all went so well! The virtual format worked better in some ways - allowing us to meet more people when we couldn't see the actual space. If we could do a combination of the two, I think that would be incredible!”
Teachers, your online application now offers you a choice to request funding for a field trip with or without the bus!
ABX extends a “hearty thank you” to The Parker Foundation with their recent grant award to help ABX hire key staff members for our long-term sustainability. Click here to learn more about The Parker Foundation founded by Gerald T. & Inez Grant Parker in 1971.
