Good afternoon everyone,

Please share this with all Michigan schools/teachers. It's a great opportunity for a several free interactive virtual field trips in December. Even if teachers cannot attend the online launches, they should still register, so they can receive access to the 360 videos and standards aligned lesson plans.

Digital Adventure: 360 Interactive Experience from Detroit Public Television

Detroit Public TV - PBS will be hosting a 3 different virtual field trips that teachers can attend with their classes in December! These will be done via OVEE (Online Video Engagement Experience).

December 12 at 1pm - Polk Penguin Conservation Center at the Detroit Zoo

December 13 at 1pm - Raptors at the Leslie Science & Nature Center

December 14 at 1pm - Organization for Bat Conservation

Classes will be able to explore 360 video from the habitats at each location. These videos will be interactive that include hot spots, which incorporate additional learning material and even a digital badge redemption code! Following the explore time, classes will be able to interact with experts from each location via a live chat. The entire experience will be approximately an hour.

Lesson plans (standards aligned) and preview material will be sent to everyone registered starting on December 6th. The lesson plans are geared to grades 6 - 12, but elementary students will LOVE this experience as well. This is also a cross-curricular event - all subject areas are welcome to attend. The focus is Climate and Culture with our winged creature friends.
