Field Trips

Summer 2004


Friday, June 18th, 2004--Washington Pavilion in Sioux Falls

Website: http://www.washingtonpavilion.org

This is one of the coolest places to visit in Sioux Falls. Group rates are reasonable and the CineDome is awsome no matter what is showing. We saw Everest in the CineDome and the cinematography was dizzying to say the least--hold on to your seats, this is quite the ride. The art gallery had a great display of Indian art work from some local artists. The Kirby Science Center is always fun no matter what age you are--of course, everyone love that tornado.

Thumbs up approval by teachers and students.

Friday, June 25th--EROS Data Center

Website: http://edc.usgs.gov/

We learned that EROS is unique in the sense that I is mostly run by non-governmental agencies using the facilities for scientific data collection to help many countries with management of ecological and natural resources. We highly recommend a visit to anyone interested in photography, earth science and satellites

.Thumbs up approval by teachers and students.
