Mrs. Habig's class went on a field trip Tuesday to Starbase. It was funded by the department of defense, and it is a STEM field trip. STEM stands for science technology engineering and mathmatics. Several experiments and activities included: measuring with the graduated cylinder, using a triple beam balance, saving an egg! Students discussed engineering and design then had to come up with a way to keep an egg from cracking when it was the thrown into a wall. Students had to budget money to buy supplies to protect their egg. The field trip has been a huge sucess so far, and Mrs. Habig's class will continue to go for the next four Tuesdays.
