Six Flags Launches New Cyber Safari
Attention teachers, troop leaders, and camp programs: Six Flags is meeting the needs of virtual and in-person learning during the pandemic and beyond with the launch of its virtual animal education program, Cyber Safari.
The program centers on a new series of free web videos that teach students about adaptations, conservation, evolution, and genetics.
Cyber Safari was created by Six Flags’ award-winning education team and in-house, state-certified teacher. Schools have the option to purchase a virtual program–with a a tailored plan offering discounted admission to the Six Flags Wild Safari’s onsite educational program –for any curriculum from grades K to 12 with a variety of unique options:
· Virtual outreach with fuzzy, feathered, or slithering animals;
· Virtual animal meet-and-greet with interactive Q & A session; and
· Grade-specific teacher resource materials including worksheets and activities for grades K-5, 6-8, or 9-12.
“We present science in such a fun way that students won’t even realize that they’re learning,” said Anastasia Wheeler, Six Flags Great Adventure’s curator of education and conservation. “The videos can be easily integrated into any type of curriculum nationwide, whether virtual or in a classroom setting.”
The program is also available for scouting, clubs, libraries, and nursing homes. The 12 free Cyber Safari videos and coordinating lesson plans are available on the park’s YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/SixFlagsGrAdventure/playlists
