Virtual school programs for elementary and middle school classes can be scheduled Monday through Friday during fall and spring terms.

Themes will include: geology and fossils with a focus on Kansas, and diversity and adaptations. Virtual programs are live-streamed experiences, led by a museum educator who will conduct demonstrations and facilitate hands-on activities with your class. Materials will be provided.

When registration opens on September 14, a Virtual School Program Inquiry webform will be available to request programs. Registration will be confirmed via phone with museum staff.  Bookings must be made at least three weeks in advance with available dates beginning in October 5.
