All Systems Go for Scott Elementary Spacewalk
The Scott Elementary Third Grade team has created a spacewalk in front of the campus that allows students and the community to learn more about the solar system. The solar system is built to scale and starts at Millbend Drive where in-person and virtual students can scan QR codes along the spacewalk to learn. Students, families and neighbors are encouraged to watch the introductory video to find the map and learn about the hours it is available.
