Penguins, Raptor & Bats — ONLINE
December 12, 2017 paperlesslion

Step inside the habitats of bats, raptors  and penguins with a virtual field trip via an amazing 360-degree technology Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 1 p.m., the Digital Adventure Interactive Experience – from Detroit Public Television and our Partners.

The programs are free and available to all online.  Register in advance here

One of our great joys at Detroit Public Television is connecting students, parents and educators to innovative and fun experiences, which also happen to have great educational value. We are offering just such an opportunity, starting today at 1 p.m.

For the next three days, DPTV, the Detroit Zoological Society, Leslie Science & Nature Center, and the Organization for Bat Conservation will take young inquisitive minds on a Digital Adventure 360° Interactive Experience.

Each day they will travel on a virtual field trip inside one of these habitats to view first-hand animal behavior – and wait until they see how penguins and bats react to our cameras! They will be able to manipulate the view at home or in the classroom to get a 360-degree perspective of the lives of these creatures.

Also joining us LIVE will be experts from each of our partner sites, who will answer questions during the event, and they will remain on the line for 20 minutes afterward.

Here is the three-day schedule of digital adventure:

  • Dec. 12 at 1 p.m. – Polk Penguin Conservation Center at the Detroit Zoo
  • Dec. 13 at 1 p.m. – Raptors at the Leslie Science & Nature Center
  • Dec. 14 at 1 p.m. – Organization for Bat Conservation

Anyone can join in the fun on just about any electronic device – smart boards, desktops or tablets.

But please register, so we can explain how to get the most out of the experience at this link.

After you sign up, you will be directed to a page with screening links and lesson plans, designed by teachers and fully aligned to the state standards for Michigan. These experiences are targeted for 6-12th grade, but are certainly not limited to this age group.

So come with us for a walk on the wildlife side. You and your favorite child might learn a lot.  (Share this email with the Raptor Lover in your life!).
