Discover the Desert Online — with Live Animals!
Virtual Programs for Youth and School Groups

Instructor Amy

Gift a Virtual Program to a Teacher! Domnate Now!

Discover the joy of the desert and the joy of learning alongside our expert Desert Museum educators, scientists, and of course live animals. Programs are offered Tuesdays-Fridays. Choose your date, time, grade level (PreK-12th) and favorite topic. Each program includes animals, bio-artifacts, extra online resources and downloads, and exclusive time for your group to have questions answered from an expert. Perfect for teachers, groups, homeschoolers, and learning pods! Programs vary in length from 30 to ~45 minutes.

Your group can be gathered in one place or dispersed in their separate homes for these programs. Each will just need a tablet, smart phone or computer with audio to view the program. We can accommodate small groups (up to 30 people) as a Zoom Meeting or large groups (26-500 people) as a Zoom Webinar.

Need a different date, time, topic or have a much larger group? Reach out to Catherine Bartlett, Education Program Manager, at cbartlett@desertmuseum.org.
