5th Grade Goes to Space and Rocket Center

On October 24th the fifth grade students at Ridgecrest took a trip to the Space and Rocket Center.  The students were able to ride the g-force ride and the moon shot to get the experience of what astronauts feel while going into space.  After, we were escourted into the museum to learn about the Saturn Five and explore the different exhibits.  Everyone's favorite part of the trip ended in the planetarium where we went into space and got up close and personal with the planets in our solar system.  This was a great experience for our students and also most of their first time visiting such a ground breaking place so close to home.
