Virtual Field Trips

Leveraging onboard video conferencing capabilities, scientists inside Aquarius and on the adjacent reefs are able to engage audiences worldwide, through interactive classes and other live programming. At FIU, researchers are able to teach classes from the depths of the ocean and visit with schoolchildren by offering virtual field trips of the undersea lab and their coral reef study sites.

Virtual Field Trip opportunities are offered at selected times of the year and are accommodated on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please contact asoto@fiu.edu for a schedule of VFT opportunities.
