Where are the Tropics and how is North Carolina connected to them? We will look at the characteristics of the tropical regions of the earth. We will also examine some of the migratory animals that we share with tropical habitats and gain appreciation for how and why they complete their journeys.
The Museum's Distance Learning "Field Trips" give your students the opportunity to interact with a Museum educator using two-way, full-motion audio and video. Students actively participate throughout the program as they work with instructional materials and natural history specimens from the Museum, which are sent to you prior to the session.
Scheduling information: Schools must have some form of videoconferencing equipment to participate. A test with your site is required prior to scheduling. To register, please submit a registration form. Contact M.T. Fore, Coordinator of Student Outreach and Distance Learning, at 919.707.9906 or firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
