Are you an educator interested in participating in a VMNH education program, but too far for a visit? No problem, sign up for a Distance Learning Program!

The Adventure Classroom Project at VMNH is a focal point of electronic outreach between the museum and the classrooms, libraries and affiliate locations throughout the Commonwealth and beyond. Staff will connect with learning at a distance to explore scientific topics using inquiry methods that will spark imaginations, enhance curricula, and support STEM education and the Virginia Standards of Learning.

The Adventure Classroom Project features 3 facets:

  • The Walker Lecture Hall has the capability of 2 way video conferencing. 
  • One-on-one discussions as well as capture and streaming video will take place in the Distance Learning Studio
  • Distance learning “in the wild”!  VMNH education staff connects from a remote site, such as a location featured in an exhibit area or area of interest.

Distance learning programs require a form of video conferencing equipment such as Skype, Zoom, or Polycom).  A video and audio test will be conducted before your program to ensure proper connection.  

Education staff will work closely with you to determine your grade specific program content.  Please call (276) 634-4185 or email for details on scheduling a Distance Learning Program.
