The National Museum of Qatar (NMoQ) is hosting a virtual field trip every Sunday and Tuesday this month. Until June, Qatar Museums (QM) is offering a variety of online seminars, tours, and storytelling. The online live tour will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and is open to the public.

"Students can now enjoy the wonders of the National Museum of Qatar from the comfort of their homes or classrooms," the NMoQ stated in a statement.

Through live interaction with the museum guide, these tours are designed to be an engaging and culturally stimulating trip for students. Students will be guided through creative activities inspired by Qatar's culture and natural environment, according to NMoQ's online instructions.

The following themes are available to schools: Life on the Coast in Qatar, Qatari Architecture, The Discovery of Black Gold and transformation in Qatar, and The Modern History of Qatar.

The Iznik Design and the Life Cycle of Plants will use the Iznik tiles design as a guide for recognizing the various stages of a plant's life cycle. After that, participants will create a diagram to explain what they have learnt. They will also get the opportunity to plant their own seed and track its progress in the provided plant journal.

Students will learn about MIA Architect I.M. Pei and how Islamic architecture inspired the museum's design in MIA Architect I.M. Pei. This course, Materials in Islamic Art, will look at how different pieces in the MIA collection are made up of different types of materials.

The Art of Illumination will look at the various decorative motifs that can be found in Islamic manuscripts. Through a Calligraphy Workshop on Geometric Patterns in Islamic Art, students will discover more about the importance of geometry in Islamic manuscripts.

NMoQ will also be hosting storytelling sessions on Mondays and Wednesdays. The dugong's underwater home and the obstacles they encounter will be explored through virtual storytelling. Following the narrative, there will be games and other exciting hands-on activities.

All workshops and storytelling sessions are free to attend, however you must register on Qatar Museums' website.
