Visit the zoo without leaving your classroom! Through videoconference technology, students at schools, libraries, and other venues can participate in a fully-interactive zoo class, complete with live animal ambassadors.
Technology information: Participants will need access to two-way audio/video videoconference equipment. The zoo broadcasts distance learning classes over IP (internet protocol) at H.323 standard. We recommend a minimum connection speed of 384 kbps. To find out if your school has compatible technology, check with your school’s media specialist or technology coordinator.

There you will find a complete list of our programs and information on how to register for a virtual field trip.
