A few things you should know:

  • Didn’t this used to be called the “Electronic” Field Trips program? What happened?
    Yep. It did. But, we’ve grown up a bit. Remember that kid next door growing up named “Johnny” that you saw recently at your high school reunion? And all of a sudden he just wanted to be called “John.” We’re kinda like that. “Electronic” is a dated word, making it sound like we’re “surfing the web” on the “information superhighway.” We’re a bit more grown up than that now.
  • What platforms and devices can I use to view the Field Trip?
    We’ve completely reinvented and rethought the entire Field Trips program for a strategic path forward. You can view content with our iPad App, Android Tablet App, Chrome App for Chromebooks, and of course, Field Trips can always be viewed from any computer on our companion website.
  • The Live Show was in 2016. How can I watch the broadcast?
    The live show is available to watch in its entirety from within the app and website. It just won’t be quite so “live” anymore. That means when you hear the prompt to call in with your questions, you’ll have to do some research on your own instead of letting our experts handle things.
  • I’m having some tech problems? Can you send over tech support?
    The Tech Guy helping someone hook up a printer, so he can’t come to your school. But, we can probably still help. If you’re having a problem, there is a good chance someone else is, too. Just email us at info@bsufieldtrips.org and we’ll try to find you a solution.
  • Are there other “Electronic” Field Trip program out there?
    There are other programs that work with museums. And there are other programs who do distance learning. But we’re not aware of any programs that come with our unique blend of classroom learning materials, digital content, and a live TV show. Our formula, though difficult to explain sometimes, is something that truly makes the Ball State Field Trips program unique.
  • I have an idea for a Field Trip! Who can I tell?
    Please, oh, please… tell us! We are always looking for great ideas for the next Field Trip. Just shoot us an email at info@bsufieldtrips.org. You can tell us about a specific place you’d like us to visit. Or, you can tell us a specific topic you’d like us to explore. Or, both. We love great ideas! (If you can send lots of ideas for trips to sun-splashed beaches, we’ll make sure our bosses see all of those. Thanks!)
  • I’d love to be part of your education consultation team for the next Field Trip. How can we make that happen?
    Our educational consultants are real teachers! In the flesh! And we’re always looking for great ones! If you like to travel, like technology, like using the Field Trips in your classroom, and don’t mind a little unexpected adventure from time to time, we want to know who you are! Just email us: info@bsufieldtrips.org.
