"Space: A Journey to Our Future"

posted Feb 16, 2016, 7:01 AM by Linda Burns

Team 1 students at KMS thrive in our team oriented atmosphere. Our goal is for our students to be able to explore and experience Space, Space Exploration and all its valuable facets as a team through hands on learning. Venturing outside the classroom is key to their success and understanding.

Our students will be working on a collaborative unit made available by NASA, Space: A Journey to Our Future, throughout a few weeks. They will explore space, space exploration and the collaboration of the International Space Station. With the opportunity our students have in attending the Portland Science Center’s exhibit by NASA, Space: A Journey to Our Future, our students will interact with an exhibit that will complement their classroom learning seamlessly. They will learn about the various technologies, discoveries and scientists that make space exploration possible.

Donations will enhance and augment our students learning through the "Space: A Journey to Our Future" exhibit. Knowledge gained in the classroom will be connected to the experience of visiting the Portland Science Center, a meaningful out of school activity. Many of our students rarely leave the valley, much less the state. It is invaluable for them to experience other parts of New England.

Please consider donating:
