The way to my students' heart is through their stomach. Yesterday was popping popcorn kinda day in class! 🍿
We were investigating science concepts and process skills that can be brought into the preschool classroom to light up those amazing minds. Our class smelled deliciously buttery & my manja students said they can think better when they're munching. Most importantly, we nailed those process skills! WooHoo .... nothing but weekend vibes now 😎

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Huntsville, Alabama. Home of the first Space Camp Program.
This is the place where they filmed the movie "Space Camp" (1986). #ItisRocketScience 🚀
Huntsville, Ala., is known as the Rocket City – and for good reason. Take your meeting to the next level by dining under an authentic Saturn V rocket at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center (@rocketcenterusa). Whatever your meeting needs, Huntsville’s got SPACE for you. #iHeartHsv#MeetHuntsville#ItIsRocketScience
Our day at @rocketcenterusa day was absolutely perfect! Andrew ooohed and aaahed from our arrival until we left 7 hours later. We enjoyed the special exhibit (The Science of Rock & Roll) where Andrew got to play guitar; the rockets on display are absolutely breathtaking in size; we rode a flight simulator twice (it threw is around so much that we cackled with laughter through almost the whole thing!); Andrew tried rock climbing for the first time; we learned about America's Journey to Space at the IMAX; we saw live footage of the real astronauts scheduled to return to Earth today from the International Space Station; we saw real Space Camp cadets (anyone wanna give us $2,000 so Andrew and I can go too? 🤣); we bought astronaut ice cream; and we left with our brains and hearts full ❤️ According to Andrew this was his second favorite day ever (his first favorite, you ask? he won't tell me 😜) #itisrocketscience#labordayweekend2017
We will be hosting a special event on August 21st for the once-in-a-lifetime eclipse event. North Alabama will experience 97% totality that gives us a rare view of the corona - the sun's outer atmosphere.
