Digital Education Program Guide

Because we value safety as much as we value education, all digital lessons are delivered live through a secure platform, allowing for an interactive environment where participants can actively engage. To support continued learning, each program comes with a participant guide including information about materials needed and extension activities.

Announcing an all-new virtual field trip from the Saint Louis Science Center!

Did you know dinosaurs lived in Antarctica? How do scientists study fossils in such an extreme environment? Work as a team to solve the challenges a paleontologist faces while excavating fossils in Antarctica throughout this phenomena-based program!

Paleo Engineers: Dinosaurs of Antarctica is a multi-contact, standards-based virtual experience that challenges students to solve a real-world problem while exploring the engineering process. Students will have the opportunity to watch the film Dinosaurs of Antarctica, then develop tools that help paleontologists tackle challenges that they face when excavating fossils in extreme environments.

Included in this program is a 45 minute at-home or in-class film screening, access to Padlet with project resources, and a 45-minute, virtual ‘live’ session with a Saint Louis Science Center educator.

Film Description: Dinosaurs of Antarctica will introduce audiences to the amazing and bizarre prehistoric creatures that inhabited Antarctic forests and swamps hundreds of millions of years ago. With major support provided by the National Science Foundation, the film follows a team of paleoecologists on a quest to understand the southern continent’s profound transformation, from a warm and bio-diverse Mesozoic to the frozen desert we know today.

Suggested grade levels: 6th-8th
Cost: $175
Duration: 90 minutes

Building Bridges

Bridges come in all shapes and sizes, but all have one purpose: to safely continue a path. Become a civil engineer as you observe the different materials, designs, shapes and purposes used in building. Use this information to bridge the gap between knowledge and creativity to construct your own bridge!

Constellation Imagination

When it comes to imagination, the sky is the limit (literally). Humans have used their imagination to tell stories in the stars for thousands of years. Fly off to different constellations in the night sky and hear the stories of their origin. Create your own constellation and tell your own fantastic stories!

Pollination Creation

When you stop to smell flowers, BEE aware that pollinators make it possible! Design a pollination system to observe how insects attract pollen. They might seem flighty, but humans rely on these little critters every day!
