Report on the Trip to the Parque Cientifico 4/27/2015
We spent February travelling to the Parque Cientifico with grades 4,5 and 6 so they could learn about the Chicxulub Crater and so much more.
In total 100 children and volunteers and a few parents visited this place.
We were welcomed by the Government representative and staff of the Parque.
We toured the Botanical Garden and saw the wonderful expo on The Chicxulub Crater and many other extras that we all enjoyed.
The most interest was shown for the many animals on display (Topic:Biodiversidad) the overall site and the garden.
Once back home the children were asked to do a display about the theme they were most inspired by and in total we had 17 displays. That is a total of 26.5% from the children.
It will be interesting to see if the participation will change as we do more of these outings.

All of the children who participated in the 2nd part of the competition received a bright coloured bag stuffed with art supplies. These bags were donated by a group of women who visited the area from the cruise ship in September of 2014.
What an exciting day it was. In Mexico, April 30th is Children’s Day so it was chosen to celebrate the works of the children who participated in the tour.
Following the assessment of and scoring of the seventeen dioramas, the group decided the winners and honorable mentions. All participants receive an award.
April 30th was a cloudy, coolish day with threats of rain but the children at both Benito Juarez and Andres Quintana Roo showed nothing but smiles and enthusiasm for their day to celebrate!
