Listed below you will find links which will help you to organize field trips and plan experiences for your
students which supplement and enrich the curriculum.
Plan now for a field trip to the MIT Museum followed by a "hands on" workshop at the Edgerton
Center which nicely reinforces science concepts and skills. The quizboard-making session is one
example which reinforces the fifth grade focus on electricity. Book it now for the spring. The
availability closes very quickly. The Edgerton Center field trips are free!
MIT Outreach Opportunities
Plan a virtual visit with an author. Engage your students with a video chat. Ask the technology
specialist in your building to help you download Skype and you are set to go. The list of available
authors is excellent.
