Virtual Field Trips

LIGO now offers virtual field trip options.  Teachers have the choice of booking s virtual tour of LIGO Livingston's Observatory, a set of three fifteen minute inquiry-style activities, or a single subject virtual activity such as Engineering Design of Center of Gravity.  All virtual activities are designed to use regular household materials such as pennies, popsicle sticks, and empty soda cans.  Each virtual field trip is designed to take between 40 minutes to an hour.  LIGO staff will use Zoom, Google Meet or Microsoft TEAMS to conduct the activity with your in-class or at-home virtual students.  If you're interested in booking a class sign up below (note:  repeat visitations are encouraged  since early studies show these may have a larger positive impact on your students).  To book a virtual field tirp, fillout the form below.
