I wish to take my "Crazy About Science" class on a field trip to the Chabot Space and Science Center in Oakland, CA. Inside the center, a fabulous program sponsored by the Challenger Learning Center will allow students the opportunity to be "astronauts for a day." They will learn and "travel" on a simulated Mission to Mars. They will work cooperatively as a team to solve problems and work towards a successful mission. This field trip will not only expose my students to space and science, but it will engage their curiosity and excitement regarding space travel. NASA estimates that in about 20 years, man will be able to travel to Mars. Wouldn't it be wonderful if this field trip "ignited" one of my students' interests in the stars/space?
