This field trip will allow students to connect classroom lessons in astronomy, technology, and careers in science. Through this experience students will enhance their knowledge of Kennedy Space Center and its impact on the economic vitality of the state of Florida. This trip is a privilege and a supplement to the regular curriculum.

TCMS partners with a private company to provide experiential learning and adventure. Their guides teach on a range of subjects in the field such as ecological sustainability, behavior and anatomy of marine life, and coastal ecosystems in a safe and fun environment.


For those students going on the Washington, DC field trip, they will visit the White House, Capitol, Ford Theater,  National Archives, Holocaust Museum, all of the monuments, Mount Vernon, Monticello and Arlington Cemetery.  The students will research fallen soldiers who are buried at Section 60 in Arlington Cemetery and the Vietnam Wall.  They will leave notes and painted stars for the soldiers they research.  Upon return, the students will make a scrapbook to be turned in which will reflect what they saw and learned during the trip.

For students going to Tallahassee, they will tour the new and old capitol, participate in a community service project, visit the Florida Supreme Court, tour the Florida History Museum and visit Mission San Luis. Students will also do a culminating project which will enable them to synthesize the role the first permanent European settlement had in our history.
