We've served classrooms nationwide with online programs.
Can’t bring your students on an Academy field trip next year? Visit the Academy virtually from your classroom. We have programs that bring our experts, animals, collections, and exhibits to your school over the internet.
Requiring nothing more than a computer with a reliable internet connection, speakers, and a projector or monitor, these sessions will bring excitement to your science curriculum.

Virtual Programs can bring the Academy collections, animals, and exhibits to your classroom most Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
Explore our collections with Academy researchers, jump into the coral reef with a diver, and get a glimpse of the night sky with experts from our planetarium.
Special Live Events take place occasionally throughout the school year. We announce programs on a rolling basis.
These webcasts are entirely free, so book a spot for your class before the spaces fill up!
Classrooms, libraries, homeschool groups, and more have connected with our educators. We've served groups from around the county, and have even delivered programs to students in Canada and Mexico!
