Every year at Discovery Canyon Campus, students from all three schools get the chance to take part in an event called Space Day.
Students are able to learn and experience different parts of science and how it can affect their daily lives.
This event also allows high school students to interact with the elementary school to show them how to build fun projects they can take home and use.
The kids were able to build their own rockets, and star charts, and get to learn how much they’d weigh on different planets.
Discovery Canyon Middle School Science Teacher Christa Lundberg said “If they take away one new thing from the day it’s been a successful day. That they are re-invigorated with the love of science, which is what we very much want kids here to see how totally cool science is and how totally cool space is.”
Physics teachers from the Air Force Academy also come and present, to show the students how physics can be fun.
They’re shown everything from static electricity to energy conservation, and they even get to play with liquid nitrogen.
But the best part of these professors’ day is when they put the students into a large circle and give everyone a shock.
