Why Virtual Field Trips?

Virtual Field Trips are an opportunity for museums, zoos, aquariums, and other educational institutions to extend engagement with core audiences as an alternative to in-person field trip. The program is flexible, allowing group sales teams to offer these films and activities as part of a larger branded package or as a stand-alone experience. GSF has produced “Field Trip Resources” for each film, which include a selection of educational activities, film posters, marketing materials, and additional behind the scenes assets. Most films are available in English, Spanish, & French with a choice of shorter or longer versions.

Premium Experiences, including live virtual chats with filmmakers or subject specific scientists are available at an extra cost.
