For students (teachers): Take A Virtual Field Trip With the Census!

"You and your students are invited to take a virtual field trip to the U.S. Census Bureau on March 5 with a behind-the-scenes pass to hear from Census Bureau Director Steven Dillingham and some of the agency’s top experts. Use this special event to teach students how census data is collected and used, and to boost their interest in the 2020 Census.

The virtual field trip is an entertaining, fast-moving video that takes students on a mission to discover details about the Census Bureau’s work, featuring insights and demonstrations from geography and data visualization experts. At the close of the video, students will be challenged to test their knowledge with an interactive quiz show.
  • Extend the experience with a live Twitter chat at 1 p.m. ET on March 5. Experts from the Census Bureau (@uscensusbureau) will be on hand to answer questions about the 2020 Census and the many uses of census data. Just follow with the hashtag #StatsinSchools to participate.
  • The field trip and Twitter chat are part of SIS Week: Everyone Counts! — Statistics in Schools’ weeklong series of daily activities to educate and excite students about the 2020 Census. The full virtual field trip video will be available March 5 through the online daily activity guide, but in the meantime you can catch a glimpse of what it will include.
