0413 Space Camp
Bluff Park students Andrew Martinez, Brodie Garner and Andrew Pierson.
Fourth grade classes from Bluff Park Elementary recently went on the ultimate fi eld trip to the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville. They learned about the history of space exploration as they toured the museum, saw exhibits and experienced interactive simulators.
While at the museum, students participated in a hands-on science lab about air pressure, watched an IMAX movie “To the Artic,” saw the Saturn V display and toured the outdoor Rocket Park with rockets and space memorabilia. Students also went on a journey to Mars on the Mars Space Rover and climbed the Mars rock wall.
