The River Dynamics Experience
This exciting new program includes a visit to the LSU Center for River Studies and same-day, hands-on classes and programs at the Museum. On their tour of the CRS, students will explore a 3-dimensional model of the lower 190 miles of the Mississippi River, one of the most technologically-advanced models in existence. At the Museum, students will collaboratively design solutions to real-world environmental challenges by engaging with a state-of-the-art stream table. Participants will also view a related large-screen educational movie at the Museum. Activities are aligned with the Louisiana Student Standards for Science.
Through this partnership with the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, this learning opportunity is available free-of-charge to 8th-grade students on a first-come, first-served basis. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register as soon as possible!
