Liberty Science Center

Give your students a distance learning adventure!

Let Liberty Science Center’s dynamic instructors become your partners in an exploration of exciting cross-curricular concepts—from the convenience of your own facility! Electronic Field Trips (EFTs) are interactive lessons delivered directly to your students at school via videoconferencing. They are broadcast live from our lab in our Jennifer A. Chalsty Center for Science Learning and Teaching.


What if your students could visit an operating room, peer over the shoulders of Operating Room (OR) staff, and talk to them during surgery? They’d remember the experience forever and many of them would consider careers in health care or biotech fields. You can provide your class with this kind of amazing opportunity via videoconference in the Live From Surgery program.

Audience members learn about the educational paths and responsibilities of each person in the OR; asking questions and gaining extraordinary insights into surgical procedures, anatomy, risk factors, and careers in technology and health care fields.
