Virtual Animal Field Trips

Science Field Trips are an in-depth exploration of a simple science topic for grades 1-5. Science Field Trips are specifically designed to follow Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).

Beginning September 15, 2020, the Randall Museum is going virtual for teachers!

While our beloved Randall Museum Animal Exhibit — Wild in California — is closed due to Covid-19, we are offering your students up close and personal Live Animal events with a live instructor via Zoom. Your favorite programs are available, as well as new offerings.

Eight Field Trips are Just a Click Away.

New this year:

  • Field trips slots are available morning and afternoon
  • Each program offers an art/science hands-on activity for students at home!
