Virtual Outreach

Program Formatting

In all programs, students will have the opportunity to observe animals from at least one gallery using a pre-recorded video, so we can ensure that students will see the features or behaviors that are key to the program. They will also participate in an educator-led interaction with at least one ambassador animal, live from our classroom studio.

Because of the interactive nature of these programs, we will work with teachers to limit the number of classrooms participating to best mimic the interaction of an in-person outreach program.

Even though grade ranges are suggested in this list, program will always be adjusted to meet the needs of the students. If you have students with special needs, please note those on your request form, and we will do everything possible to accommodate those students.

All programs are aligned with the science standards of Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama.

*Please note, all programs require booking at least 10 business days in advance.
