“We were very impressed with the engaging and rigorous STEM activities." 4th grade teacher

"This was an awesome experience for our students. It really helped them to personalize the concepts of "push-pull" and force in their minds. Thank you for the opportunity!"
-Marcia Moore 2nd grade teacher

Take a peek at the fun!

What teachers are saying!

The STEM classroom lessons were very engaging and connected to the activities…. The transitions between the activities was smooth and well organized. My students still talk about the field trip!!!

2nd grade teacher, Cobb County

You provided a well organized, fun educational fieldtrip! Thank you!
