Learn@Lunch Live - Virtual Field Trips
Limited Capacity seats available

Join us on a super exciting virtual field trip at the TD Bank Theatre on the showfloor as we demonstrate how your district can leverage the Cisco TelePresence system to take students on virtual field trips. In this simulation, your scheduled mission puts you onboard the the space station as it glides through the silence of space, two hundred and fifty miles above the earth. The station's solar panels bathe in the sun's rays, generating the electrical energy vital to the station's systems. Everything appears tranquil and safe. A major solar flare, however, is about to erupt. We'll ask for a few volunteers from the audience to help us save the day while showing you how your students can take advantage of this technology saving your district money!
