More Fascinating Field Trips

This trimester, SFT students were on the road again to a number of fasci­nating field trip destinations:

Secretly recorded White House tapes, orig­inal docu­ments, arti­facts, and photographs were on display at the Cuban Missile Crisis exhibit in the Lawrence F. O’Brien Gallery of the National Archives Building, reminding us of just how close we were to nuclear war in October 1962.

A tour of the Mont­gomery County Recy­cling Center gave us a first­hand look at the bene­fits of recy­cling and how recy­clables are processed.

At the National Museum of the Amer­ican Indian , we were able to catch a glimpse of the heritage, lifestyle and philoso­phies of Native commu­ni­ties while browsing one of the most exten­sive collec­tions of Native Amer­ican art in the world.

Most recently, a trip to the Mary­land Science Center in Balti­more had our students partic­i­pating in a nanotech­nology work­shop, learning how to use a star map inside the plan­e­tarium, and witnessing, through IMAX, the Great Migra­tion across the Serengeti.
