In response to educators transitioning to online teaching and learning, the Infiniscope team offered 43 educators from all over the U.S. a 4-day online workshop held July 14-17, 2020.

This workshop focused toward creating virtual field trips that connect students to their community and promote learning that is rooted in students’ own “place” such as their neighborhood or town. These educators were tasked with creating a VFT for classrooms use. VFTs are guided online explorations that organize a variety of media such as 360-degree images, standard images, text, and interactives into a structured, immersive, learning environment. Educators were given a variety of pre-produced NASA media to build their experiences or they could capture their own media to tell their stories.
