At the end of the school year, Ladera 3rd grade students went on a field trip to the California Science Center and the Space Shuttle Endeavor, funded by a C4CC grant awarded to 3rd grade teacher Stephanie Lopez.
Ms. Lopez wrote:
“This grant allowed all students the chance to see the Endeavour and other exhibits at the Science Center free of charge. In preparation for this field trip students learned about the solar system, planets, the sun and moon, and previous shuttle trips. Approximately 62 students benefited from this grant. Students were able to see the size of the space shuttle, touch different pieces of the shuttle, such as the tires and jets, and watch footage of the its’ landing and transport to the Science Center. The students greatly enjoyed this field trip as it made subject matter come alive and provided real world application.”
“Thank you so much for helping us visit the Science Center and giving my students the opportunity to see a piece of history.” - teacher Stephanie Lopez
