Our Lady of Refuge’s sixth grade class celebrated Science Day with a field trip to the Michigan Science Center. The excursion began with an electricity show in the Sparks Theater where the hair of one student literally stood on end! In a hands-on exhibit, the sixth graders learned about the forms of energy by attempting to lift a 1,000 pound weight. (They succeeded!) An engaging IMAX movie taught the class about the microbial mysteries around us, followed by a presentation in the Planetarium about the vastness of the universe. The day was wrapped up with a ride on the Planetarium’s virtual Mobius Strip roller coaster. It was a fantastic day of science fun for everyone!
