We’ve certainly come a long way since starting renovation in our new space in November. Our new home is buzzing with construction, anticipation and possibilities. The transformation is astounding and we’re looking forward to a lot more happening in the next couple of weeks and months.
Freshmen in Who Am I? and Fuel spent the day at the Museum of Science and Industry. It was a day full of learning through experimentation and play. For Fuel, students explored different different types of energy and for Who Am I?, students learned about themselves.
The purpose of this Field Experience is to 1) see what types of fuel and energy are out there and 2) to learn about yourself and how your body and mind are connected.
You will explore the museum to find and learn about examples of fuel and energy, as well as the elements in the periodic table. Then, you will reflect on yourself through the Artist Cafe and You the Experience exhibit.
