Road Trip!

It's that time of year when we start taking our core experience field trips! This Spring, we have several exciting trips planned for our sixth graders. We will be visiting Toyota and taking a tour of their Princeton, IN plant on Friday, February 20. You can learn more about this trip by visiting this link: Toyota Plant Tours. In March, we will be hosting an Astronomy Night here at Delaware School. This will take place on Thursday night, March 19. The Evansville Astronomical Society will be bringing some high-powered telescopes to Delaware on this evening so we can get a close-up view of our solar system. We hope to be able to see Jupiter on this night among other stars and constellations. We will also be having some engaging, hands-on activities on this night as well. You can learn more about the Evansville Astronomical Society by visiting their home page. In May, we will be visiting Indiana University and the WonderLab Science Museum in Bloomington, IN. We plan to visit IU and take a tour of the campus on the morning of Friday, May 15. We will then head to the WonderLab after lunch that afternoon. We also hope to go canoeing on Pigeon Creek sometime in May. We are trying to schedule this trip around the second round of ISTEP testing and all of our end-of-year activities here at school. We hope to find a date and finalize it in the next month or so. It is a great outdoor trip sponsored by Canoe Evansville.
