STEM Field Trip
FHS Students Take Annual STEM Field Trip

On this year's annual STEM trip, students from Ferndale High, Berkley High and the International Academy visited the beautiful Pacific Northwest! While in Seattle, students built and flew drones at Boeing, visited the headquarters of Microsoft and Amazon, witnessed weather forecasting in action at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and made and monitored a small seismic disturbance while visiting the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network at the University of Washington.

In Portland, the group visited the National Primate Research Center, the Oregon State Mental Health Museum, and learned about hydroelectric power at the Bonneville Dam. At iFLY, students made calculations used to determine terminal velocity and learned about the engineering design of wind tunnels before trying their hand at indoor skydiving! They also visited two colleges: Willamette in Salem, OR and Reed College in Portland, OR. Students were even able to perform half-life experiments using Reed's nuclear reactor!

The students had great fun experiencing multiple STEM fields, making new friends, trying new things (including Voodoo doughnuts!), and ​seeing a beautiful part of our country.
