For the past 21 years, our Electronic Field Trips/HERO Live! broadcasts have been a cornerstone of our programming for teachers and students. Due to the changing use of technology in the classroom, April's broadcast was our last. However, the online, on-demand multimedia library of programming will remain available as we continue to collaborate with our nation's finest educators to develop innovative, engaging, and effective professional development offerings in the future. Stay tuned!

We very much appreciate the support of everyone who worked on and promoted the HERO Live! and Electronic Field Trip series over the past 21 years. We hope that you will join us as we continue to explore groundbreaking strategies for engaging 21st-century learners. Thank you especially to our viewers---we could not have done it without you!
