These days, educators and parents are discovering new ways of doing things amid the pandemic. Educators still want to give their students as many experiences as possible both inside and outside the classroom.
Virtual field trips are one option to make this happen. Even if students are remote learning, they can still take a virtual field trip to anywhere they want. Think about all of the travel time everyone will save!
At MakerKids, we know that thinking out of the box is what’s keeping everyone going. This is why we’re offering virtual field trips. Let’s take a look at what students can do right from their classrooms or even their living rooms.
Virtual Field Trips to MakerKids
When kids take a virtual field trip to MakerKids, they can take part in all types of projects. From creating their own video game to making a night light, all participants will leave the trip with an awesome project.
In the process, they will pick up robotics skills, engineering skills, and work on problem-solving skills. What is offered during our field trips are many of the same skills that kids receive when they take in-person and virtual classes with MakerKids. Of course, kids are always having fun in the process!
Teachers can choose which area they want their trip to focus on. During a robotics trip, for example, students will design, plan, program, and build an electronic invention while using a robotic microcontroller and learning how to code.
During a coding field trip, kids will learn how to code their own game. For children in grades one and two, we offer mini-maker trips. These trips focus on creating and making use of various platforms and gadgets at their own speed.
