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.
