Clayton GEAR UP Students Visit Oklahoma Science Museum

Clayton 10th grade GEAR UP students recently visited the Oklahoma Science Museum in Oklahoma City. Students engaged in hands-on learning projects with interactive science pieces found throughout the kid-friendly museum. Students learned about gravity, motion, electricity, color and geology just to name a few of the many science concepts offered at the museum. After exploring the museum, students attended a showing of Stars in the planetarium. Originally founded in 1958, the Oklahoma Science Museum is a popular destination for kids of all ages. The variety of interactive displays make learning fun for all science explorers both young and old. The museum is well visited throughout the year by families and school groups from across the nation. The field trip was sponsored by Eastern Oklahoma State College GEAR UP. Eastern received a $17 million federal GEAR UP grant in 2017, and will serve more than 3,000 students in 39 area schools for seven years.
