Learning at home doesn’t mean you have to miss the fun field trips! Now you can take a virtual field trip to all of Ingenium’s three museums — the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum, the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, and the Canada Science and Technology Museum — from the safety and comfort of home.

During this five-week series, participants will enjoy a fun, interactive session about a different subject each week. Ingenium’s Education Team has selected a diverse group of programs from our Virtual Field Trip menu to create a unique experience for you!
