Virtual Field Trips

Apr 24, 2020 | Pasadena

Campus closures have taken away invaluable school experiences from our children.  Many were disappointed when they found out that the field trip they were looking forward to all year had now been cancelled.  As much as everyone else, we wish that things would go back to normal, so that we can all go outside and enjoy this wonderful world that we are so lucky to be a part of.

One way to go exploring (while stuck at home) is to take a Virtual Field Trip.  Here is a list of fun, eye-opening places for you and your family to visit - virtually.



  • Boeing Future U.-Explore aerospace technology with virtual field trips and interactive videos.
  • Manufacturing- Explore STEM careers by meeting professionals and exploring facilities.
  • JPL- Videos about Earth, our Solar Systems, Stars & Galaxies, and Technology
  • Access Mars  - Explore the real surface of Mars as recorded by NASA's Curiosity rover.
  • Star Atlas- Explore over 60,000 stars, locate planets, and watch sunrises and solar eclipses.
  • Volcanoes- U.S. Geological Survey interactive map
  • Nature Works Everywhere- The Nature Conservancy offers 11 virtual field trips.
