6th Grade Visits the Kennedy Space Center

Foundation Academy 6th Grade Kennedy Space Center

Students Chase, Jacob, and Jaden build a rover during a STEM activity. Their rover went furthest when tested on the ramp!

Monday, March 18, Foundation Academy 6th Grade visited the Kennedy Space Center! Our 6th graders have really enjoyed the focus on earth and space science this year, and were very excited to for this field trip. Mrs. Waters, one of our 6th grade instructors, commented “It was so inspiring watching them [at Kennedy Space Center] engage in the STEM challenge, connect with the Apollo missions, and internalize the work ethic and perseverance message from the astronaut.” 

One of our parent chaperones also had this to say of the visit: “[The 6th grade] field trip to Kennedy space Center was very well organized, executed and FUN! I overheard the group of four girls that I walked with commenting about how much they learned, saw and experienced – how ideal for these students! 
We have been on a school sponsored field trip to KSC before and this by far exceeded it! It was a great STEM experience and I as a parent am appreciative of the time and work that went into making it a reality, thank you to you and your teachers.”

Thank you to Kennedy Space Center for hosting our 6th graders for the day, and giving them an unforgettable experience! Check out the gallery below of images from the day!
