Virtual Field Trips

Take the Farm Experience Directly Into a Classroom!

Virtual Field Trips allow farmers and ranchers to open their barn doors to show students what happens on their farms and ranches. The farmer or rancher uses a tablet to connect with classrooms to be a part of a live, video-chat allowing students to have their questions answered in real time.
