Virtual Field Trips and Online STEM Learning Experiences

Students can visit the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) in Chicago without leaving their classroom. They can participate in a facilitated Learning Lab livestream or take a live virtual tour of some of the museum’s most popular exhibits.

The virtual field trip offerings include “Mars 2040” in which students in grades 5–8 learn how NASA plans to get the first human mission to Mars by the year 2040. Students in grades 7–12 can participate in the “MedLab: Diabetes” virtual field trip where they will learn about vital signs and medical examinations while analyzing data to diagnose and understand diabetes. The “Weather Wise” field trip invites students in grades 3–5 to explore atmospheric phenomena and learn how scientists predict weather. “Live from the Heart” takes students in grades 9–12 into a hospital’s operating room to observe via video as a surgical team performs heart surgery. Students can talk to the team, learn about heart health, and find out about medical careers. The “Virtual Tesla Coil” gives students in grades 4–7 an opportunity to experience lightning virtually and learn the relation of the Tesla Coil to wireless technology, and the “Virtual Vortex” lets students in grades 2–6 explore the forces that create a 40-foot virtual vortex and then connect their learning to other natural phenomena, such as tornadoes.

Plus: The museum’s free Learning Resources Hub provides educational tools in science, technology, engineering, and medicine to bring STEM learning to students no matter where they are, or what time of year resources are needed.
