Hopewell students explore the cosmos without leaving school

07/16/2014 09:05PM ● Published by ACL

Prior to the end of the school year, sixth grade students at Hopewell Elementary School had an opportunity to enhance the lessons in their "Weather & Water" science unit when the NASA GeoDome, a portable digital planetarium, was installed at the school for two days of presentations by teacher Mark Neff. Sitting inside the GeoDome, students experienced a 360-degree tour of the solar system, utilizing data from the TERRA satellite mission. The GeoDome is made available to schools through the Chester County Intermediate Unit. Pictured with Neff are (from left) Alysen Zabosky, Katie Hayes, Cameron Hudson, Miguel Tapia, David Shatley and Gabbie Burton.
