Distance Learning

This September, we will be offering distance learning presentations from our site at Glen Echo Park into your classroom.  Please contact us if you are interested.  Sessions will range from 15 to 30 minutes.

Visit the aquarium without leaving your classroom!  Through videoconference technology, students at schools, libraries, and other venues can participate in a fully-interactive aquarium class, complete with live Chesapeake Bay animals.

Technology information:  Participants will need access to two-way audio/video videoconference equipment.  The aquarium broadcasts distance learning classes over IP (internet protocol) at H.323 standard.  A connection speed of 384 kbps is recommended.  To find out if your school has compatible technology, check with your school’s media specialist or technology coordinator.
