The ATEEC Interactive Learning Lab partnered with the Putnam Museum to host 240 students from Wood Intermediate School. The students were divided into four rotating groups. Three groups toured the Putnam and spent time in every exhibit area including the mummy display in Unearthing Ancient Egypt, and watched “Tornado Alley” in the National Geographic Giant Screen. While at ATEEC, the fourth group of students toured the Wind, Solar, Biodiesel, and Green House exhibits, and then spent time as budding wind turbine engineers.
Mike Schulte, their 7th grade science teacher, worked very hard to coordinate this trip with all of the teachers, organized the bussing, and set up the schedules with the Putnam Museum and ATEEC. “The students were totally enthralled with the learning! The trip was a great example of how hands-on learning engages and ignites student curiosity,” said Mike. Thank you to Mike and all the teachers who helped for all your hard work to make this day happen for your students!!
