Field Trips

Connect with Chabot Educators on a Virtual Field Trip

For the 2020-2021 school year, we have shifted to a virtual learning model so that we can bring science exploration to you. Virtual Field Trips will take you through a full field trip day of science exploration-whether you’re in the classroom, distance learning, or in a learning pod. 

We have a variety of interactive, NGSS-aligned content available for all grade levels, K-8. Each pre-recorded video comes with built in time for discussion, pause/play timestamp options to fit your learning schedule, extension activities, and a how-to guide to help you facilitate your custom field trip day.  


Reservation Process

Step 1: Read through the complete video descriptions, and choose the activities that work best for your class. 

Step 2: Create your own field trip experience by selecting the activities that fit your student’s needs and interests, or select a curated bundle designed by our Education team. 

Step 3: Fill out the reservation form.

Once your form has been received, a member of Chabot’s education team will be in contact to confirm your Virtual Field Trip! 

Note: If you have a credit from the 2019-2020 school year, you can choose to use a portion of that for a virtual trip this year, or extend your credit into next school year. All credits have been extended to May 2022.
