Two years ago, as Carnegie Museum of Natural History (CMNH) and partner educational organizations experienced lockdowns, staff furloughs, and other COVID-19 related disruptions, continued communication with the teachers and other educators we had long served informed decisions about necessary and frequently drastic program adjustments. In this three-segment session, presenters from CMNH and Tree Pittsburgh, an environmental non-profit organization dedicated to enhancing the city’s urban forest, will share lessons learned about engaging neuro-atypical learners in virtual space, overcoming the challenge of gaining and retaining the attention of scattered remote audience members, and how the primacy of authentic objects in learning is not diminished through a virtual interface. Time for participant questions will be provided.
