Scientists In Action

Connecting Students with Scientists - FREE (Recommended Grades 4- 12)

Want to take your students on an amazing field trip? Scientists in Action connects students directly with scientists during a live, interactive broadcast from field sites or research labs. During these free, 45 minute Q&A sessions, scientists demonstrate research techniques, share new discoveries, demystify the scientific process, and open a window into science careers. 

What to Expect

During this free Q&A program, multiple classrooms from across the continent connect at once. A select number of classrooms will be invited to ask questions on-camera. All classrooms will be able to ask questions via a chat box and participate in interactive polls. The student questions drive a majority of the program content. 

Equipment Requirements: Any computer or smart device connected to the internet.  The Museum will provide the link and instructions to use the free Zoom Video Conferencing Software, and a webcam with microphone are mandatory for on-camera classrooms. A projector and external speakers are recommended for your classroom setup.
