On Wednesday, October 31st, Mrs. Codington took the Laurens Academy eighth grade class on a field trip to the Clemson Planetarium for their Earth science class. The field trip was focused around our solar system and space. While at Clemson, the eighth graders learned about stars, constellations, asteroid belts, other planets, galaxies, and phases of the moon. They also learned about different theories about space including the possibility of aliens existing. The eighth graders got to go sit inside a dark, big, blow-up dome where they viewed different phases of the moon and look at different constellations. They ended their field trip with lunch at Wendys in Clemson. The students loved the chance to learn more in depth about our solar system and space with Mrs. Codington in Clemson.
