Take your class on a virtual field trip to a Pennsylvania Beef or Veal Farm from the comfort of your own classroom!
This one-of-a-kind learning experience, developed for middle and high school students, will turn Pennsylvania classrooms into virtual beef and veal farms through the use of Zoom video conferencing technology.
With the click of a mouse, students will be transported to fields, visit barns and view animals live, guided by a Pennsylvania beef farmer or a veal industry expert, as they learn about how food is grown in Pennsylvania and see what beef and veal farmers do each day to care for their animals. They'll even be able to chat with the farmers during a live Q&A session.
If you are interested in learning more information or joining a field trip, contact Kaitlyn Carey,
