Virtual Field Trip Xperiences

These venues are offering Virtual Field Trip Xperiences (VFTX) funded by ABX

Click on a link below to access detailed descriptions of Virtual Field Trip Xperiences (VFTX).  When you have selected your VFTX, complete your application for funding and reserve your date (subject to first come, first served availability) for your exciting VFTX.


Unless noted, each VFTX is designed for a 45 to 60 minute period for a single classroom of less than 40 students. Please know that each venue will do its very best to personalize your Xperience to your class grade level to ensure a personalized and interactive “live” Xperience.  Unless noted, each VFTX funding requirement is $250. Subsequent VFTX scheduled on the same day at the same school are available at discount fees.  ABX will calculate the total funding required based upon your application.
