This afternoon my FIRST Lego League team had their first field trip of the “Food Factor” season. It was very informative and the kids learned a great deal about food contamination and what is currently being done to prevent it.
It’s amazing how many incredible field trip opportunities there are in our local community. Usually it is just a matter of finding the right person and asking. These sorts of experiences give the kids a chance to learn more about what is happening right where they live, it gives them a chance to meet some very interesting people, and the opportunity to practice interviewing skills.
Gotta love field trips!
