What is a virtual field trip newsletter?
A virtual field trip newsletter is an immersive and educational experience delivered through regular newsletters. It allows readers to explore fascinating destinations, learn about diverse cultures, discover scientific wonders, and engage with interactive content—all from the comfort of their own homes.
Our virtual field trips are unique in that every day Zoptiks will deliver an immersive, bite-sized choose-your-own-adventure story powered by 4D holograms, 360 VR tours, AI tutors, maps, and VARK workbooks.
Perfect for lifelong learners, curious K-12 explorers & educators.
What are the extra apps that are part of my membership?
Zoptiks started out making zoo maps and also make microschool management software. Although you will not receive access to these services via a membership we have built apps that you can use.
Tutor - While we have AI chatbots built into our field trips, Tutor is a personalized AI system that can create all kinds of documents, images, code snippets, text-to-speech, and can even transcribe audio. Great for educators creating worksheets & lesson plans as well as explorers looking to chat with their favorite historical figures.
Drive - An encrypted Web3 cloud storage solution, similar to Google Drive or Dropbox. We encourage our learners to store their educational information in a dedicated space that will last a lifetime.
Crypto - A practice cryptocurrency trading platform where you can practice investing in the modern world. Please note that although Crypto is connected to real crypto metrics, we do not allow real money to be exchanged at this time.
Views - A video-sharing platform where Zoptiks and our content creator partners share content. Whether it's a live virtual field trip, prerecorded video, or short-form content; Views is where you can find it. Members are able to post on Views.
Muze - A audio sharing platform where Zoptiks and our creator partners share audio content such as sounds, songs, podcasts, and audiobooks.
Yearbook - Our classroom memberships are able to create private communities where teachers can facilitate discussions in collaboration with parents.
Boards - An AI vision board generator where learners can type in a goal or image they would like to create and our system will generate it. Creating a personalized board is a great way to cement goals.
Scouts - A internship and career job board that enables our explorers to find their first roles. We partner with zoos, microschools, and various organizations and connect you with opportunities.
