Free, Interactive, Online Programs for Student Groups

Special Live Events are free programs open to all schools, homeschool groups, afterschool programs, and other organizations that serve students in kindergarten to 12th grade. We suggest that you only sign up for programs that match the targeted age group of your students. 

Because of the interactive nature of these programs, we recommend combining no more than 2 classes per program reservation.

 

 

 

2017-2018 School Year Programs

Special Live Events are announced on an ongoing basis. Check back periodically for newly announced programs. Sign ups begin September 1, 2017.

How Will Your Students Interact With Us?

Via a Webcam

Students get to be on camera and talk directly with the expert. Space is limited for this option, and you'll need to get media waivers signed!

Via a Chat Box

Students get to see and hear the Academy expert, and enter comments and questions into a text-based chat window. Most classes select this option.

It's a Snap!

All you'll need is a computer with an internet connection, speakers loud enough for your class to hear, and a display large enough for your class to see.
