Student Virtual Programs

Discovery Center Virtual Programs

Our Discovery Center Virtual Classroom Programs are a great way to bring an NGSS aligned lab experience to your class in a safe and convenient format. Modeled after our popular Discovery Center Lab field trip programs, our STEM Educators lead students through an exciting in-person, real-time experience.

Teachers will be provided with a supportive digital package that includes student handouts. No additional materials are needed. A Zoom account is not needed to participate.

Length: 40 minutes Up to 25 students per class.

Virtual programming was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.​

Grades K-2

  • Animal Appetites
  • The Secret Life of Plants   
  • Shifting Sediments

These live multimedia interactive shows include real-time, explanation based demonstrations.

Global Soundscapes

Recommended for Grades 4–8; 40-45 minutes

Join us on a mission to listen to and explore sounds from living things around the world. Travel with us to the Costa Rican rainforest to discover different sounds and see what sound can reveal about an environment and the animals living there. Interact with a live, virtual presenter as we play games, travel the globe, and train our ears to listen carefully to the sounds all around us.

Funded by the National Science Foundation.

Creative Creatures

Recommended for Grades K–3; 40-45 minutes

The Earth is home to thousands of species of animals, living in different habitats around the world. These creatures survive due to their specific adaptations for their home environment. Join us and a live, virtual educator to explore what an adaptation is, how they come to be, and see some of them in action with some of our live animal friends.
