We’re all a little tired of Zoom learning, but this very special virtual experience is designed to give teachers a leg up… with the help of some four-legged friends! Cyber Safari, an interactive virtual animal education program launched by Six Flags, will let educators sign their students up for sets of classes that feature engaging content filled with furry and feathered friends.
These free online videos focus on topics such as adaptation, conservation, evolution and genetics, subjects typically covered in elementary and middle school. Cyber Safari will help make learning come to life and assist teachers who are feeling the remote learning fatigue.
Created by Six Flags’ award winning education team and in-house, state-certified teachers, Cyber Safari also offers personalized virtual teaching programs for purchase for any curriculum, grades K-12, which can be custom created for specific classes. These unique programs include options such as virtual outreach with small mammals, birds and reptiles and a virtual animal meet and greet with an interactive Q&A session, as well as grade-specific teacher resource materials including worksheets and activities.
Schools and groups who purchase a tailored plan will receive discounted admission to the Six Flags Wild Safari’s onsite educational program, Science on Safari. This is a contact-free, drive-through safari experience featuring 1,200 exotic animals from all over the globe. It also expands upon lessons from Cyber Safari virtual videos through a newly implemented audio tour complete with guidebooks. More info can be found here, or you can email SafariPrograms@sixflags.com.
And if you are anxious to see the Safari in real life, or get your rollercoaster fix, you’re in luck. Six Flags just announced their spring opening dates in March for the Wild Safari Drive-Thru and Great Adventure.
