5th Grade California Science Center Trip

The fifth graders, who are learning about the earth, sun and moon this trimester, recently took a trip to the California Science Center, where they got up close and personal with the space shuttle Endeavour and explored exhibits like “Creative World,” examining the science behind the technology humans use to meet their needs for structures, transportation and communications. Our students also became designers and engineers in an egg drop challenge. These scientists-in-training worked within a budget to design, construct, and test their protective devices to save their precious cargo from injury from both a 6-meter and a 9-meter drop. Using their communication and collaboration skills, over half of the teams were successful, with their eggs surviving impact!
