The Advanced Technology Environmental and Energy Center, ATEEC, just released 7 new virtual field trips created by environmental science instructors. These virtual field trips were created as part our annual professional development workshop, the ATEEC Fellows Institute, hosted in Alaska this year. All of these are of course FREE materials from our website
