In honor of Take Your Child To Work Day, Google will be hosting 18 virtual field trips today via Hangouts. The search giant is partnering with Forbes to set up visits to various businesses, which include trips to: the Georgia Aquarium, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Stanford National Lab and the Chicago Bulls locker room.

Each trip will feature an industry related professional who will discuss topics like breaking into their specific field and a sample of its day-to-day activities. Google sees this as a way to expose students to a wide range of career opportunities, regardless of their location or resources. The field trips can be accessed by visiting Connected Classrooms and will run from 9am – 6pm EST.
