What is National Technology Field Trip Day? 

Over a dozen technology organizations have volunteered to open their doors for 6th to 12th grade students to see STEM in the real world. 

How do I secure a trip for my class? 

There are a limited amount of trips available and will be first come first serve. Trips would occur between March 27th and March 31st. Email Chief Science Office with your request ASAP. 

How did NTFTD start? 

The idea for National Technology Field Trip Day was presented by CSO Sage Foreman at the White House in October 2016 as a White House Kid Science Advisor.
