CORSE Scientific Explorers - Spring 2017

My Afterschool Class, Scientific ExplorersSponsored by the CORSE Foundation will be combined with the Computer Explorers to be a new class:  

Best Buddies (for grades 4-6).

The class will cover several aviation and space topics including how airplanes fly, how rockets work, planets, space travel (shuttles and ISS).  Each year we take a fantastic field trip and we hope to return this year.  We also hope to be able to schedule the STARLAB planetarium for one of the classes.
