Take Student Travel Groups on a Science Trip to Washington DC
Student Science Trip group leaders and teachers often bring school groups to Washington D.C. about history and government travel. So The capital of our country has a rich history and the executive, legislative and legal branches of the government are located in the center. So This makes the trip to Washington D.C. perfect for studying history and government. tourism and travel
However, Washington D.C. It is also an ideal place for student trips that focuses on science-based learning. There are several attractions in the Washington DC area that complement the study of science, including: Smithsonian So Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian American & Natural History Museum,
NASA Goddard Visitor’s Center, So Maryland Science Center, Baltimore National Aquarium,
Marian Kashan Science Museum and National Zoo. In addition to scheduling visits to these
locations on the itinerary, So student groups can also provide time to visit the US
Capitol / Supreme Court, take an illuminated tour of monuments and memorials,
and see the U.S.S. Barry: all in a trip of three or four days.
American Natural History
This article will provide a brief overview of important places for a science trip in Washington D.C.
Smithsonian Air and Space Museum and Smithsonian American Natural History Museum
So These two museums are a good starting point for an educational science journey.
American space exploration and innovations in flight are well documented and
preserved in the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum. Students can participate in
guided tours or educational programs tailored to specific grade levels. So A visit to the
Air and Space Museum will provide interactive learning about aircraft, outer space
exploration, and pivotal moments in American history when American scientists and
programs led the world in discoveries on aerospace missions.
So The Museum of American Natural History offers guided and self-guided tours and
educational programs related to the history of the Earth: fossils, rocks, So animals, wildlife
and prehistoric remains, ocean environments and more. Student groups can visit
permanent or special exhibits related to their curricula, and teachers can focus the visit
on exhibits that complement real-life classroom learning experiences in science.
So A visit to these two Smithsonian museums provides an excellent opportunity to learn about science.
NASA Goddard Visitor Center
At NASA’s Goddard Visitor’s Center, So student groups gain a deeper level of understanding
of modern space research. The group can view photographs taken from the Hubble Space
Telescope with images of planets, So galaxies, black holes and views of Earth taken from outer
space. So Students can watch movies of Earth and outer space in Science in a sphere projection
space, where the movies are projected onto a spherical screen. Student groups will also learn
about information gathered from satellites and other vehicles designed to explore deep space
through photographs of phenomena on Earth, the Sun, So and the planets. Student education is
enhanced through the lens of high-tech devices used by NASA scientists to advance our
understanding of the universe.
