Virtual Field Trips & Talks

SERC Education Department

Virtual Programs
For Schools and Groups

SERC’s new classes include offerings for students and teachers, and provide a variety of opportunities and formats for learning and teaching. All programs are designed to be stand-alone, but many can be used together to build content, knowledge, and understanding. Most programs can be adapted for a variety of ages and to fit the needs of your group.

Our Environmental Literacy (eLit) series focuses on current topics related to better understanding our world and SERC’s research in ecology, biology, chemistry, and science. Costs vary, but the basic rates are below. All classes align with NGSS standards.
