Virtual Field Trip
Program Description

Starting on September 8, 2020, we will be launching an online layer of programming to complement Beaty Box rentals.

We will offer two bookable online programs to compliment a Beaty Box rental:

Online Beaty Box Sketching (Kindergarten and up)

Online Beaty Box Adaptation Exploration (Grades 3 – 7)

Program Length

Online programs are 60 minutes long. The online program includes up to 15 minutes for a tech-test with the organizer, students, and facilitator before the program begins, plus 45 minute program time, which includes time for student questions and discussion.

When you click the zoom link, you will be taken to a waiting room. The organizer will be let in first, so we can quickly touch base about the program. Then, students will be allowed into the zoom room where we can check that things are set up and working smoothly before we begin. The main organizer can sign on a few minutes before the scheduled start time (up to 5) if preferred.

Booking Times

Online sessions are offered at 10:15 a.m. and 12:45 p.m.
Online programs are booked using our online booking form and follow our regular booking policy and procedures

Class Size & Management

A maximum of 30 participants per booking makes for an optimal experience. We will expect the adults responsible for the group to provide group management and facilitate Q&A. The amount of time for individual students to ask questions and interact will depend on the number of students in the call.
