« Middle School Science - Learning about "Moon Rocks" »

Mr. Carmichael, ECDS Science Teacher, brought in “Moon Rocks” to show his 7th and 8th Grade Science students last week. He was allowed to borrow the rock samples from NASA, after attending a workshop at California Polytechnic University to learn about the rocks from NASA scientists. The rock samples were encased in plexiglass disks to protect them, with one disk containing Lunar rocks and the other disk containing Meteorite samples. The loan of these rocks to educational institutions is very tightly controlled, due to the scarcity of the rock samples that were brought back from the Moon by astronauts.
