Fieldtrips

Field trips to sites off-campus allows students to collect and analyze real-world data, learn new skills, broaden their horizons and bond as a class. Students can also explore new careers and/or find out what life is like on a college campus college life.  In an effort to make relevant connections between academics and career courses, ACE students participated in numerous fieldtrips.

ACE SENIORS ONLY:  Disneyland, Saturday, March 2, 2013


You will learn the role of mechanical physics at Disney California Adventure Park. You will study Newton’s Laws of Motion and use the scientific method to explore the practical uses of speed, velocity, friction, gravity, and different forms of energy. With the Park as your learning lab, you will participate in hands-on experiments to see and test the relationship between physics and popular Disney attractions – The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror; Goody’s Sky School, and California Screamin’.

ACE Visits McBride High School in construction

In 2011,  Science students had a special invite to travel to the THUMS oil islands in Long Beach, to tour facilities and participate in a native plant restoration to increase habitat for local wildlife.  Students learned about oil extraction, safety and pollution concerns as well making a positive contribution to biodiversity.

 

Ms. Maben’s Catalina trip to Mountain & Sea Adventures was a trip to remember as students learned about about sustaining ecosystems, the need to use nenewable resources and building "green." when designing structures.

Students also learned about new and emerging clean air technologies and innovations that will decrease the impact of fossile fuels on global warming, determined their “carbon footprint” and heard from a panel of high-schoool students who have won various environmental competitions.

A.C.E. students participated in several college tours and workshops at LBCC, CSULB, USC,
and UCI to expose students to the college life and multiple options available after
graduation.

Fieldtrip to El Dorado Park: Science Sampling

Forty-five Environmental Science students and 5 teachers spent the day gathering data from the ponds, forests and meadows for biodiversity and differences between habitats. Students also learned about the sites construction history and on-going restoration plans. It was a great day outdoors and fun and learning was had by all!

REMEMBER: You must dress appropriately and have a completed permission slip to attend any future fieldtrips.
