What a fun and exciting day it was for Ms. McClammy's second grade students! Their field trip took them to the Sea, Sand and Stars Science and Nature Center in Orange Beach. The facility features a beautiful 5,800 gallon saltwater aquarium with a large variety of local fish, including redfish, speckled trout and cobia. It also features “touch tanks” in which visitors can touch and/or hold certain marine animals such as flounder and hermit crabs. Additionally, the facility has a 38-seat planetarium with projector that employs technology used in the best planetariums across the world. Outside, an 800 ft. boardwalk leads to four large outdoor gazebo classrooms where students learn about birds, plants, amphibians and insects. In partnership with WKRG television, a weather station, complete with measuring and monitoring technology, allows students to learn meteorology and then report the weather on a real television news set.
