Soaking in the grandeur of Washington DC, the frenetic pace of NY City, the marshes of Florida and the glitzy, gleaming liners in Miami; 22 students of DIS had a summer they would not forget.
The school trip to USA was planned around a 3 day Astronaut Training Program at Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. Our students vicariously experienced the thrill of a successful space launch, conducted experiments and landed safely. Roller coaster rides, simulator rides, music shows made the Magic Kingdom experience truly magical.
Collateral learning in terms of taking care of themselves, their belongings, passports, foreign currency not to mention team work, far exceeded educational goals. As an accompanying teacher I have come away with good memories of the trip and am proud of my students.
