Virtual Field Trips

High school classes or clubs can now participate in six different Virtual Field Trips at Malone University! Without actually leaving your campus, we are excited to lead your students through learning experiences that provide university-level education taught by expert faculty in areas of study relevant to your group. 

Additionally, your students will experience a free 20-minute personality quiz through PathwayU that connects who they are with meaningful careers options based on their interests, personality, values, and workplace preferences.



Fall 2020 options include:

Cybersecurity— Wednesday, November 11

Discover the binary foundations of data by creating secret messages and learning to decode the secret messages passed to you by others. With the help of our on-campus cybersecurity experts, you’ll work at your own pace whether you’ve never coded or have significant coding experience. 

Education Competition—Wednesday, November 11

As high school students interested in pursuing careers in education, your experiences as a student have no doubt shaped what you believe makes an effective teacher. Refine your thoughts by applying them to a challenging case study and by writing a personal mission statement that you can submit for a chance to win a Malone University scholarship. 

Poverty Simulator—Wednesday, November 18

What is life like as a parent leading a low-income family? Experience a life-changing glimpse into the reality of poverty through this hour-long online simulation. Each participant will be assigned a persona constrained by low-income, common life challenges, and often-times frustrating opportunities to connect to community resources related to housing, childcare, bills, utilities, and transportation.
