The students received a surprise announcement on Friday morning – it was the first Annual HOS Surprise Day! A mobile planetarium visited the school to give each program the opportunity to journey into space! Cosmic IQ is the experiential education company that provided the mobile planetarium, a guided expedition in an inflatable dome with cutting-edge projection. The students took an exciting and immersive adventure, exploring our solar system, planets, moons, stars and beyond.
It was pure joy to share the students enthusiasm and see their faces as they learned more about space. Part of the excitement was learning that the “surprise day” will be a new tradition to be enjoyed each year (…and finding out they would get to do a fun activity related to the curriculum!)
