Virtual Programs Calendar

Due to COVID-19, the Zoo’s on-site school programs are on hold. While we cannot meet your class in person, we invite you to connect with Zoo educators in one of our free, virtual school programs and Wild Side of STEAM webinars. See the schedule of upcoming programs below.

How to Register

Virtual School Programs

Virtual school programs are freebut registration is required. To register, click "Sign Up" next to the program of your choosing. All programs are based on availability. If the program is booked, you can join the wait list for your desired date. You will be contacted to confirm your program and to follow up on logistics. Please note that all programs are listed in Eastern Time. 

In order to serve our audiences fairly and equally, we ask that teachers only register for one program per class each semester. If you are interested in more than one theme for your class, contact the education team to be added to a wait list for a second program.


Webinars are free and registration is requested but not required. To register, click "Sign Up" next to the webinar of your choosing. To join, click on the Zoom link posted in the webinar description, available at least one week prior to each event.
