Hands-on academic experiences wanted for fifth-grade field trips

Hokie for a Day

From: Center for Educational Networks and Impacts

The Center for Educational Networks and Impacts invites Virginia Tech faculty, students, and student organizations to participate in a Hokie for a Day Expo.

Hokie for a Day offers fifth-grade students a unique opportunity to experience college life. The visit includes a discussion of college majors, a conversation about how to get to college, an expo with hands-on academic experiences from Virginia Tech faculty and students, lunch at an on-campus dining hall, and a chat with a student athlete.

Expos are on Wednesdays between 10:00 and 11:45 a.m. at the Moss Arts Center between Sept. 21 and Nov. 30.

Experiences can be from any academic discipline and should be safe, fun, and educational. Experiences should be about five minutes long, and will be repeated five or six times for new groups of learners. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis. Earlier proposals are more likely to be accepted. Send us your idea today. Questions? Email us at
