Log Number: MA-251558-OMS-22

The Tech will conduct an evaluation of its virtual and in-person field trip programs to adapt to the evolving needs of the education community after the COVID-19 pandemic. Project activities will include conducting a landscape needs assessment to better understand educators' perspectives on field trips and barriers to participation; updating existing field trip programs, marketing, and operations in response to the findings with iterations as needed; and publishing/disseminating learnings as a case study to support other science museums with strategies for making field trips more accessible for schools. The results of the evaluation will aid The Tech in increasing field trip participation to provide more K–12 students with critical hands-on science and engineering learning experiences.
