Virtual Learning Labs

Let's talk immersive, hands-on, STEAM education programming!

This year is challenging enough without worrying about how you will create a multitude of educational experiences that will keep kids engaged, excited and learning. And how, as educators, do we create something that will work well for students learning from home as well as in the physical or virtual classroom?? The Air Zoo's NEW virtual learning programs are the perfect pairing for any teacher's "classroom."  We have created more than 30 science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) programs to help support you in your classroom (or living room) this year.  And - it's easy!

Looking for something that will shake things up and give your students a hands-on lab style experience? Great, we have materials that supplement the majority of our programs and will ship them to you prior to your class. 

Check out the Virtual Learning Lab options below to register for scheduled Education@Home Programs or to book your classroom's Virtual STEAM  Program today!

Education@Home 

These home based programs are great for engaging your children while they school at home and are the perfect addition to any homeschool curriculum, as they are designed to fulfill Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) with dynamic, hands-on lesson plans. Some programs will have student material kits that can be shipped to your teacher or picked up at the Air Zoo and distributed to students, while other classes will have a material list of items most students have at home, like markers, paper, or tape.  In both cases, students will complete interactive activities with the Air Zoo Educator, live.  Prepare for your programs and follow up to reinforce concepts with the pre- and post-lesson activities available on our website! 

Education@Home programs split weekly by age group and take place on Tuesdays from 9am - 10:15am or from 1pm - 2:15pm.  Classes are only $6 each and early registration is required.
