Experience Ingenium’s museums on a virtual field trip! Designed for schools and summer camp groups, Ingenium’s programs are engaging, entertaining, and educational. Participants connect virtually with a museum facilitator — and each other — from the comfort and safety of their home, school, or camp facility. Choose from an array of highly interactive activities designed for all learners, such as mind-boggling science demos and experiments, stories that capture the wonder of flight, or an up-close meeting with barnyard animals.
