Recently sixth-graders from Brockbank Elementary took a field trip to the Provo Waste Management Plant. This trip went along with their science curriculum about microorganisms. The students were given a tour of the plant to see the process in which waste water is purified. Students learned how good microorganisms help remove bad microorganisms and help clean water. Another field trip sixth-graders got to go on was to the BYU planetarium where they got to learn about the sun, the planets, constellations, and how astronomers conduct their research. Brockbank sixth-graders think science is awesome, especially when they get hands-on experience with it.
