Background

Food is a critical part of our lives. Not only do we need it to survive, but food has important social and cultural significance, too. Modern food production includes everything from backyard vegetable gardens to multibillion-dollar industries; and advanced techniques in precision agriculture are revolutionizing the way we make our food, how much of it we can grow, and how we address pressing issues like food security. What are the innovative tools that are helping farmers in their fields and researchers in their labs? How do new supply chains impact the quality of the food on our plates? What challenges does the industry face, and how are people currently trying to solve those challenges to secure the food supply?

Adventure

Awaits

Adventure Awaits

Site 1

Satellite imagery

Farmers need eyes all over their fields to keep track of their crops’ health, predict good and bad growing years, and track weather patterns. The first stop in understanding how farmers feed the world isn’t in the fields at all—it’s in space! We’ll explore how satellites, sent up by space agencies and orbiting closely to our planet, take pictures to be sent back down to those with boots on the ground.

Site 2

Agricultural field

Next up, it’s time to get our hands dirty as we head straight to the farm! We'll walk the fields with a farmer who uses the information from the satellites—along with a host of other tools like sensors and maps—to take care of their crops and grow as much food as possible each season.

Site 3

Food processing plant

Not everything we eat is fresh from farmers’ fields! In order to feed the world, some products on grocery store shelves must be preserved, stored and shipped. Who’s responsible for turning fruits, vegetables and grains into the many packaged foods we eat, and how do they do it? Our last stop on this virtual field trip will be to a food processing plant, where we’ll delve into what it takes to receive food from the fields and get it to tables across the country… and the world!

FAQs

Find answers to common questions about the registration process, program details, and participation requirements.

What is an E2 program?

At its core, an E2 program is a live broadcast during which you and your students will visit multiple sites and meet multiple industry experts all in a single class period, without the cost and hassle of bus transportation or permission slips. During the event, you and your students can ask the experts questions via our interactive Slido platform.

But an E2 program starts before the one-hour broadcast and can continue afterwards, as well. Each of our educational programs is built around a curriculum-aligned theme, and we provide educational materials for you to use both before and after the event, including discussion questions, mind maps, experiential learning activities, reflection questions, links to external resources and more. In addition, if your students asked any questions that were not answered during the live broadcast, we'll follow up with the experts on your behalf and get answers!

E2 programs are designed to fit easily into any curriculum, and we're happy to answer any and all questions you might have on how to do so, either by email or live chat.

Who are these virtual field trips for?

E2 Adventures are designed for students in Grades 6 through 12. We're currently working on developing virtual field trips for a younger audience! If you'd be interested in providing feedback on how we can adapt our field trips to students in Grades 2 through 5, please send an email to info@e2adventures.com.

What's so special about E2's virtual field trips?

Our educational approach is what makes our virtual field trips so special. E2 field trips are:

• Live: Whether we're visiting a site in Canada, Iceland, Australia or Japan, you'll meet the experts live, in real time.

• Interactive: Using the innovative Slido platform, your students can ask questions at any time. They'll also participate in polls, answer trivia questions and maybe even vote on the next thing they want to see! E2 virtual field trips engage students in active learning.

• Curriculum-aligned: How could an E2 Adventure fit in with your particular curriculum requirements? That's easy! All of our events are multidisciplinary, and we provide educational resources that will help you seamlessly integrate the field trip into your classroom learning.

What makes these field trips interactive?

During each and every live broadcast, students can ask the experts questions in real time via the Slido platform. Several questions will be answered during the event. Questions that are not answered during the broadcast will be sent to the experts so that they can answer them in writing in a document we will email to you the following week—providing another opportunity for you and your students to circle back to what they learned!

Our events team will also engage your students during the trip by posting live polls and getting students' input on what they'd like to see next.

What programs are available?

For a list of the live, interactive, virtual field trips currently in production this school year, visit the Programs & Events page. If there's something you'd like to see that's not currently offered, let us know by emailing us at info@e2adventures.com!

How long is an E2 field trip?

Our virtual field trips are one hour long. You and your students can join the Slido event up to half an hour before the broadcast starts to answer introduction polls and test your knowledge of the subject!

I signed up. Now what?

Once your registration is confirmed, we will send you field trip-specific educational resources that you can use before or after the event. We'll communicate with you two weeks prior to the event with more information, as well as one day before the event as a reminder.

What do I need to get ready?

It's easy to stream the live broadcast or show an asynchronous version of an E2 Adventure. All you need is your classroom computer and projector!

You can choose to stream the event on YouTube or Vimeo. You will be provided with both links prior to the broadcast, and you can open the links up to 30 minutes before the start of the broadcast.

Share the provided Slido link and/or QR code with your students up to 30 minutes before the start of the broadcast. They can start to interact with the events team via live polls and multiple-choice questions.

No downloads! Just make sure that your school's firewalls don't prevent you or your students from accessing YouTube/Vimeo or Slido.
