Virtual Field Trips
Visit Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium from the comfort of your own home or classroom! Virtual field trips are hosted live through video conferencing with Zoo experts, and take participants inside the most popular exhibits at one of the world’s best zoos.
Designed to align with and supplement school curriculum, our distance learning programs are perfect for schools that cannot travel to the Zoo and for students learning from home.
During our virtual field trips students will learn about Zoo animals, speak with experts, play games, and explore habitats from around the world. These programs are fun, interactive, and correlate with state and national standards. Programs are scheduled at your convenience and connection is easy. The only technology required is a webcam, microphone, and an internet connection (preferably wired). All programs are adaptable for different age groups and developmental levels.
- 60-Minute Program Fee: $150 (out-of-state), $140 (in-state) for the first program and $125 for each additional and consecutive program.
- 30-Minute Program Fee: $125 (out of state), $120 (in-state) for the first program and $100 for each additional and consecutive program.
Due to the interactive nature of the program, class size is limited to one grade level and 50 students. Small schools may combine grades if they limit to under 50 students.
A pioneer of Distance Learning, Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium began connecting with schools in rural Nebraska over 20 years ago. The Virtual Field Trip program is a proud recipient of the Pinnacle Award from the Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration.
