Discover – who invented insect repellent?
Discuss – what changes can we make to the world and our community?
See – amazing portraits of astronomers, neuroscientists, mathematicians, astronauts, environmentalists and more!
How does it work?
Virtual Excursions are 60-minute learning programs where your group has access to a Gallery Learning Facilitator via videoconferencing.
You can connect with your:
- videoconferencing system – e.g. Polycom, Tandberg or similar;
- classroom PC or Mac with connected webcam and microphone;
- mobile device(s) – e.g. iPads, Android tablets.
Once you’ve made a booking, the Gallery will email you more information with instructions on how to connect.
