Has anyone else found that Field Trip options are limited? We don’t live in a big city and while we do have a lot of good options for field trips, I feel like there is a lot more that we are missing out on. The boys have so many interests and while I want to cater to them, I find it hard to find field trips near us.
Field Trip Zoom is the solution for field trips! With over 250 live events for kids Kindergarten through 12th grade (and adults, too), there is a great selection of field trips in music, science, history, and more. They even have a section specifically for homeschoolers!
TLDR for Field Trip Zoom

- Field trips with experts
- Field Trip Zoom Homeschool
Variety of Field Trip Zoom
One problem we have with local field trips is a lack of variety. Due to our location (desert) nearly all notable trips involve desert learning. And while that is interesting, we want to learn about other topics as well!
We’ve been with Field Trip Zoom for nearly two months and had the chance to learn about so many topics – from Pocahontas to the Civil War, heart health to the bill of rights, and space to chemistry. There are events for kids of all ages with all interests.
As homeschoolers, I know we try to follow our childs interests. And sometimes that gets hard as their interests become more refined. Field Trip Zoom can take care of that. With such a great variety of topics, your childs interests will probably be covered. You can sit back and relax as they are engrossed in their field trip (but probably not because every presentation we’ve seen has been utterly fascinating).
Quality of Field Trip Zoom
We’ve been on a lot of field trips and I feel confident saying that the quality of the Field Trip Zoom broadcasts is bar none. The speakers are passionate and it shows as they are knowledgeable and engaging. For the parent who needs a break or wants to let a professional step in – Field Trip Zoom is perfect. They know what they are talking about! You don’t need to spend hours researching and reading before presenting the lesson.
Just let Field Trip Zoom do the work for you.
Interactive Field Trips with Field Trip Zoom
The broadcasts are online but they are still engaging and interactive. There is a chat box in the feed where students (or curious parents) can ask questions or answer questions directly to the host. The kids stay engaged and if they want more information or want to clarify a point, they are easily able to do so. My kids had more questions for the hosts because they knew the hosts were knowledgeable in those particular areas. And I think being allowed to type in a chat box was sort of exciting.
Field Trips in Your PJs (or wherever you are)
We are relaxed people so the idea of learning in our PJs is enticing. The idea of a field trip in our PJs was even more enticing. But Field Trip Zoom is more than that. You can access these high quality broadcasts right from your living room (or the laundromat, as it were). For families with kids of multiple ages, this is perfect.
Logi-Bear is just 5 and has the attention of a 5 year old. The problem is, when we lose his attention, he wants to move. This can make field trips for older kids difficult. With Field Trip Zoom I don’t have to worry about that.
First, Logi-Bear can watch the parts that interest him! And he has learned so much since he is allowed to come and go at will. He enjoys being a big kid and watching the big kid shows.
But when he gets tired of sitting, he can wander off while the rest of us still enjoy the broadcast. I don’t have to worry about him jumping or running or being loud because we’re at home!
We couldn’t be home on this day and we had a Field Trip Zoom trip planned! But we were able to find an internet source and hop online. It was so easy and convenient and ended up being a great way to use our time that day. We learned a lot about Pocahontas and the Native Americans in Virginia.
