As part of its youth and community investment initiative, last week alliantgroup volunteers took more than 80 underserved students from Highland Heights Elementary on a STEM field trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
During the field trip, the fifth graders were guided by alliantgroup volunteers to explore areas such as the Morian Hall of Paleontology. The Morian Hall of Paleontology houses more than 30 dinosaurs including an all bone T-rex. In addition to the tour, the students also participated in hands-on lab experiments on renewable energy and were treated to a viewing of Dream Big, a 3D movie about engineering.
The students and alliantgroup volunteers also enjoyed catered lunch together outside at Houston’s beautiful Hermann Park.
The field trip is just the latest excursion in a growing list of community outreach initiatives sponsored by the Blue Heart Fund, alliantgroup’s nonprofit charity, designed to expose students to STEM education at an early age.
