What is a Field Trip on Demand Program?
A Field Trip on Demand (FTOD) Program is an educational video presentation that covers curricular outcomes in a fun and engaging way while guiding students through the steps on how to complete their very own take-home projects.
How long is a FTOD Program?
The video presentation for each Field Trip on Demand Program varies. The length of the program activities is dependent on the complexities of each class and the preparedness of the students. During this program, teachers have complete control of how to facilitate the program and the pacing of this experience in your classroom. Use the chapter markers within the video player to navigate the video content with ease. We have included a Chapter Guide as well that details each major section of the experience.
How long do I have access to the FTOD Program?
Once you receive the project materials, an information sheet enclosed will guide you through the steps on how to access the Field Trip on Demand Program (FTOD) content. An activation code for the educational video will also be provided in this document.
Please note that once you click and activate the code online, you will only have 48 HOURS to access the video. You will not have access to the FTOD video once the 48 hours expires. However, you can still access all other program-related information for the remainder of the school year.
What do I need in order to successfully run a FTOD Program?
Requirements for a FTOD Program are:
- Internet connection
- Reliable computer/laptop
- Projector screen/Smartboard

Do I need specific programs or applications for this in-school field trip program format?
No, FTOD Programs do not require special programs/applications. We will email you a link closer to your presentation date that will allow you access to the program.
What do I have to do to prepare for my FTOD Program?
The setup for each FTOD Program may vary depending on the topic so please refer to the comprehensive Teacher’s Package attached in your reminder email for important information regarding your scheduled program.
What if I need to switch the date of my FTOD Program?
Please note that the date entered in our booking system refers to the day in which you want to receive your take-home project materials by. You do not need to facilitate the program on the specified date.
If you require the materials right away, contact our office as soon as possible and we will try our best to send you the materials by your new request date. Please note that we cannot guarantee that the materials will arrive on time if you do not provide us with at least 15 business days notice in advance.
Where do I pick up materials/supplies for the take-home project?
All supplies for the take-home projects are individually packed and shipped directly to your school. The number of take-home projects sent to you will be based on the number of students recorded in our booking system so it is crucial that you keep us updated with any changes to your class size.
When can I expect to receive the take-home project supplies in the mail?
We will ship all project materials to you approximately 2 weeks before your scheduled FTOD in-school field trip program.
Project materials are individually packaged for each student. Please ensure that you have enough projects for your students as soon as you receive the order. Contact our office immediately if you have any questions or concerns.
What if I need to order more take-home projects for my class?
Contact our office as soon as possible if there are any changes to the number of students participating in the FTOD Program. To avoid additional charges and any delays for your shipment, contact us at least 15 business days in advance of your scheduled program date.
If you need additional projects after we have shipped the materials to your school, there will be an additional charge for shipping the second time. Please be aware that in the instance where the number of students changes once we have shipped the materials, we cannot guarantee that the second shipment of materials will arrive on time for the program.
How does payment work?
You will be invoiced once the materials have been shipped to your school BEFORE the day of the program. You will be charged for the number of sets of materials you requested upon booking. This invoice will be emailed directly to the accounts payable individual at your school.
If you require additional sets of materials and we have already shipped materials based on your original booking amount, we cannot guarantee that the second shipment will arrive on time. Shipping charges will apply.
We do not provide refunds for materials already shipped if you need to decrease the number of material sets required and have not notified us more than 15 business days in the advance of the program date.
