Loma Vista sixth graders attended a week long Outdoor Science Camp last month in Wrightwood, California located in the San Gabriel Mountains to learn about environmental science through hands-on experiences.
The science camp was full of activities for the sixth graders. They had the opportunity to do daily hikes, including a night hike. This allowed students to explore the wilderness and engage in scientific inquiry while making observations about environmental science.
Everything they learned through this science school focused on state science standards through hands-on learning and exposed students to new social settings, exploring different environments, and provided them with new experiences.
Aside from the hikes and outdoor learning, students had a dance and a performing arts night.
This trip was supported by the district who helps with the cost of attending the camp.
“The district supports our students by giving each camper $100 to help the cost,” Loma Vista principal, Kristine Carreon, stated. “Loma vista 6th grade teachers and students would like to thank the parents, District, and board members for continued support of this program.”
