VIRTUAL FIELD TRIPS

Bring The DoSeum into your classroom—in school or at home—with Virtual Field Experiences and other online resources. The DoSeum’s education team has created opportunities for you and your students to engage in our unique brand of joyful learning and discovery. Like all DoSeum programs, these offerings are rooted in constructivist principles and active, student-led inquiry.

Please note that, due to state sales tax laws, DoSeum VFEs are only available for purchase within the State of Texas.


 

Available Virtual Field Experiences 

Students will participate in a themed experience while virtually visiting DoSeum galleries and exhibits, hosted by one of our very own DoSeum educators. Upon registration, a unique link to the experience will be shared with you. To help your planning, this link will be live for two weeks following your order! You will also receive a reminder one week prior to the link’s expiration.

All DoSeum Virtual Field Experiences are TEKS aligned.
