Students at Park Elementary School received a real treat last week during the Arizona Science Center Extravaganza that was held at their school. “This is a whole day event that allowed our students the opportunity to visit exhibits they would likely never have the opportunity to do otherwise,” stated Principal Connie McPherson.
The day featured hands-on projects in anatomy, astronomy, coding, ecology and conservation, physics, engineering, bioscience and medicine. This is a first-time opportunity for students at Park and Hulet elementary schools with the program funded through a grant that allows the STEM-based (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) endeavor to come to rural areas in the state.
