alliantgroup Hosts STEM Field Trip For Houston Elementary Students to Space Center Houston

As part of its youth and community investment initiative, last week alliantgroup volunteers took more than 80 underserved students from Shearn Elementary on a STEM field trip to Space Center Houston.

During the field trip, alliantgroup volunteers guided the fifth graders through areas of the Space Center such as the center’s Starship Gallery, featuring flown spacecraft from the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo eras, along with a walk around Independence Plaza, and go inside and explore the shuttle replica Independence, mounted on top of a the historic and an original NASA shuttle carrier airplane.

In addition to the tour, students participated in hands-on STEM learning activities involving virtual reality and robotics.

The field trip is 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.
