Virtual Programs are live, interactive programs that connect your class to Academy collections, animals, and exhibits 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.

Connect your students to the Academy over the internet

2018-2019 school reservations are available NOW!

Our educators will be available on select Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30am to 3:00pm PT. We can start one of our live, interactive programs at a time that fits your schedule.

Choose a program from the menu below. Then book a time on that program's teaching calendar so we can meet with your students virtually!



Virtual Programs are interactive, online sessions designed for groups

Participation is open to all schools, homeschoolers, libraries, hospitals, and other organizations that serve K-8 students. We recommend serving no more than 65 students in a single session. Payment is not taken at booking, but is due before we can deliver your program.

Pricing Options

$70 per session;
50% discount for Title I schools;
20% discount for pre-paid bulk purchases of 5 or more programs to use throughout the school year with any class.

Multilingual Support

We have bilingual educators!
Let us know if any students in your class might benefit from activities taught in Spanish, Cantonese, or Mandarin.

Connecting is Easy

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.
