Today, we spent the day on the JMU campus. We started off the overcast morning at the John C. Wells Planetarium where we traveled all over the galaxy visiting our neighboring planets. We also got to see a lot of winter constellations. Our second stop was to the Science on a Sphere. The students learned what type of carbon footprint they are leaving on the earth and what affect the melting of the ice caps will do to Disney World and even us. We finished our day with a nature walk around the Edith J. Carrier Arboretum where the students learned about some native plants that bloom only at the early signs of Spring. Overall, we had a great day and they students learned a lot about Science.
