Students in Space
By: Kahler Middle School Last Updated: February 28, 2020

Kahler’s sixth-grade class took their annual trip to The Challenger Learning Center of Northwest Indiana. Sixth-grade science classes prepare for this field trip by learning about the Challenger Disaster and skills they will need for the trip. Students participated in a mission simulation. In the simulation the class was split in half, one half went to the spacecraft and the other worked in mission control. The classes’ mission was “Return to the Moon.” Classes participated in a simulated rocket lab as well. The aim was to build a rocket that can make it into “deep space orbit.”
