Last Friday Leading Edge sixth graders went on a field trip to the Lawrence Hall of Science. It was lots of fun. First we had some fun outside on a giant DNA strand and a big plastic whale as well as ate lunch.Then we went inside and started looking at exhibits. There were lots of exhibits that were interactive...Like one where you scaled a wall like a gecko.
Then we went to a class called "Engineering with Hydraulics". There was another class called "Fantastic Gases". In Engineering with Hydraulics we had to design an arm to lift a weight using syringes, tubes and wood building blocks. After the class we looked at some other exhibits. Next we went outside to a beautiful courtyard with a great view. Even the pond outside was an experiment! Then to the gift shop, where some people bought stuff. Then the long ride home...What a great day!!
