MOBILE DISCOVERY CANTER VISITS SARAH COBB ELEMENTARY
Discovering the wonders of science and math comes in many forms and can be accomplished in a variety of ways. When the National Science Center's Mobile Discovery Center (MDC) van visited Sarah Cobb Elementary School, students and teachers alike were immersed in the excitement of hands-on science.
Housed in an 18-wheeler van and staffed by U.S. Army military and Department of Army civilian personnel, MDC van demonstrated to everyone that studying science, technology and math is exciting and fun, as well as essential to their future. A 50-minute MDC presentation consisted on hands-on, interactive science demonstrations. Normally 6 sessions are conducted each day, and each sesson can accommodate from 35-40 students.
Mobile Discovery Center programs are made possible by a partnership between the U.S. Army and the National Science Center. Sarah Cobb Elementary School has been on the waiting list for 3 years. Mrs. Karen Newton of Sarah Cobb Elementary School coordinated the entire event.
