Virtual Field Trips
Bring the wonder and excitement of the Buffalo Museum of Science to your virtual classroom!
Our experienced facilitators will bring a unique educational experience and scientific expertise to your students. Whether you’re looking for an eye-popping science demonstration or a Behind-the-Scenes tour, we can customize programming to suit your needs.
If your district guidance allows, kits can also be assembled and delivered to your school to give your students immersive, hands-on experiences.
$125 per program
Kits can be prepared at an additional cost of $5 per child. Please note that dissections are more expensive and vary based on the specimen selected. The Buffalo Museum of Science will deliver them to a single location, but will not be responsible for distributing to individual students. Kits require a minimum of two weeks for processing and assembly.
Limited funding is available thanks to generous support from AT&T. Priority for this funding is given to Buffalo or Niagara Falls public or charter schools and Western New York Title 1 schools
For more information or to book your experience, please contact [email protected] or call us at 716.896.5200 x 338.
These programs require the facilitator to remotely present to you classroom, including sharing media. This may mean that they would need to be granted co-hosting rights. Please see your IT administrator for details or restrictions.
