Since 2007 the Purdue zipTrips team has developed, delivered, and researched electronic field trips (EFTs) in PK-12 science education. zipTrips have connected thousands of middle school students throughout Indiana, across the country, and overseas with Purdue scientists in real time. The team-developed lesson plans, online videos, and three EFTs meet state and national science standards in comparative biology. Assessment results show zipTrips effectively increase students' interest in science and science careers. Findings have been presented at numerous science education conferences and in peer-review journals. The project was partially funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute.
