During field trips our students will have
an opportunity to study the plankton community in Lake Fayetteville
with microscopes. Check out this amazing video of plankton that can be
found in freshwater ponds to get ready for your lab!
Recent cold temperatures have created some challenges for our field
trips during the past month. Pictured is a channel cut through the lake
ice so that our pontoon boat could reach open water and students could
continue water sampling! Let this be a reminder for upcoming field
trips to dress warmly!
Cold temperatures have also helped to bring in large numbers of a
variety of waterfowl species that students have enjoyed observing. We
are looking forward to warmer weather in the near future. Until then,
check the forecast before your trip to the Science Center.
The mission of Fayetteville Public Schools, the first public school district in the state of Arkansas - where excellence is the expectation, is to ensure all students are successful in a highly competitive and rapidly changing global society.
