Virtual Field Trips

Virtual Field Trips

“The Virtual Field Trips provide my students an opportunity to visit places and experience things they would not normally be able to do.  They have been exposed to the importance of soil science in farming, gardening and maintenance of golf courses.  They have also heard about possible careers in soil science that they would not have heard about if it had not been for the virtual field trips.  Virtual field trips are the next best thing if you cannot actually visit those locations.”  Ann Smart, Science Department Chair and Science Squad Coordinator Cabrini High School, LA
