FSA STUDENTS AND PARENTS VISITED GEORGIA GAME DEVELOPER ASSOCIATION"S FAIR

This past week a group of FSA students and parents visited the Georgia Game Developers Association’s Spring College Fair and Portfolio Show at  the Georgia International Convention Center, near the Atlanta airport.  Even though this event was mainly for college and high school students, our middle school students were also invited.  We thank Georgia Game Developer Association for covering our transportation cost for this trip. It was a great event for those students interested in game development. Next, we are organizing a trip to Emory University’s robotic laboratory. More information on this new trip will be shared soon.

ELEMENTARY STUDENTS HAD GREAT TIME AT ATLANTA BOTANICAL GARDEN

Last Wednesday, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade students traveled to the The Atlanta Botanical Garden to enjoy a  guided tour by several of the Garden’s docents that focused specifically on plant diversity.  While most plants have similar parts, each species’ vary in function and appearance according to their environment. During this tour, students discussed plant adaptations as they explored the Outdoor Gardens and the Fuqua Conservatory – particularly the rainforest, desert and southeastern bog gardens. 


Afterwards, we walked to Piedmont Park to enjoy a picnic lunch and get some exercise at one of the playgrounds.  After releasing some energy, students returned to the Botanical Garden to explore the Children’s Garden.  See some of our pictures below and check out the Field Trip board in the main hallway to see an even more complete Atlanta Botanical Garden field trip in pictures!
