This morning 5th graders from Marshall Elementary School enjoyed a visit to Lowell highlighted by exciting science demonstrations, an in-depth tour of the Clark Telescope, and fun and educational activities in the exhibit hall. The visit was part of a program sponsored by the Roberts Ayers Sciences Fund that is bringing all 800 5th graders from the Flagstaff Unified School District (FUSD) to Lowell for educational programs.
Prior to this morning’s programs, Lowell director Eileen Friel, FUSD Superintendent Barbara Hickman, and 5th grade teacher Dottie McCann commented about the significance of the partnership between Lowell and FUSD and cited sponsor and Lowell Observatory advisory board member Robert Ayers for his dedication to improving science education. Dr. Friel also read a statement by Mr. Ayers. For more information read the press release.
