TACOMA, Wash., Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Elmhurst Elementary School received an education grant from Seattle's Pacific Science Center in partnership with Google, giving students exposure to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education.
The grant allowed 450 students from kindergarten through fifth grade to take a field trip to the Pacific Science Center in Seattle. Inspirus Credit Union sponsored the field trip by providing staff and students with t-shirts to identify their group.
"We're honored for the opportunity to take our students to the Pacific Science Center, so they can get a jump start in STEM education," said Elmhurst Elementary School Principal, Carrie Adrian. "Our students have a unique opportunity to discover science beyond the classroom, and we're grateful for the support of Inspirus Credit Union, Google and the Pacific Science Center for giving our students this chance."
On February 13, students walked through the halls of the science center and immersed themselves in health and wellness, environmental and earth sciences, and physical sciences and engineering. They explored the science playground to learn how an electric motor works and discovered how elements in the environment change from morning to evening, and summer to winter.
"This truly was an amazing learning experience and our students were so captivated by the different exhibits and what they learned from this field trip. We will be bringing what we learned back to the classroom, and continue to work on STEM education with our students," said Adrian.
Elmhurst Elementary School is one of eight elementary schools in the Franklin Pierce School District. Their approach to learning in a respectful, responsible and safe place allows for their students to soar in the classroom.
