    Join us for a day in nature. See details below on our programming for the day:

    Stream Ecology Adventures
    Our local watersheds critically impact our daily lives, from the foods we eat to the health of our drinking water. Starting in our indoor classroom, students will use a watershed model to investigate the impact that people have on aquatic ecosystems and discuss ways to conserve this valuable resource. Lead by our field trip instructors, learners will then hike down to our woodland stream to get their hands in the water, catching different critters for identification! Based on the diversity of captured organisms, water temperature, and pH, students will get to assess the stream’s water quality.

    The Stream Ecology program will be offered to those 4th grade and up  The fee is 3.00 per student for this program only.

    Those 3rd grade and under will tour the site with our adventure packs provided by the Botanical Gardens! Each pack con­tains maps and sup­plies for hands-on sci­ence activ­i­ties, plant hunts and for­est explo­ra­tions to be com­pleted in dif­fer­ent areas of the Garden. Please bring a pen per child and a camera for our photo scavenger hunt.

    Please pack a lunch and arrive on time. Please dress for the outdoors! We will also host a Q&A on GCA in the picnic area at the front of the visitors center after the event and will have books and materials to view for families.

    Georgia Cyber Academy Visit to: AFRICAN COSMOS: STELLAR ARTS,

    And the EMORY PLANETARIUM

    Michael C. Carlos Museum,  10 am- 12 pm   Wednesday, March 18, 2015

    This event is filled to capacity.

    Georgia Cyber Academy will visit the Michael C. Carlos Museum of Emory University for a Docent guided tour of a major exhibition from the National Museum of African Art at the Smithsonian entitled African Cosmos: Stellar Arts.  This is the first major exhibition to explore the intersection of astronomy and traditional and contemporary African arts. Featuring more than seventy works of art from throughout the African continent,African Cosmos considers how the sun, moon, stars, and celestial phenomena such as lightning and rainbows have served as sources of inspiration in the creation of African art from ancient times to the present.

    The exhibition includes ancient works that illuminate Africa’s contributions to the science and practice of astronomy including the Egyptian identification of Osiris with the constellation we call Orion, and the deification of the brightest star, Sirius as Sopdet.  19th and 20th century works of traditional African art illustrate the legacy of astronomical knowledge and its use as a rich source of metaphor.  These include Dogon sculptures (Mali) that connect earth and sky; a Yoruba (Nigeria) sculpture honoring Shango, the thunder deity; and a rare Baule moon mask (Cote d’Ivoire).  Contemporary artist, Marcus Neustetter’s piece Chasing Light simulates the fleeting celestial displays of the aurora borealis using sound waves from the northern lights to vibrate water and capture reflected laser light.

    Planetarium Visit:

    The solar system, constellations, phases of the moon, and movement of the stars are part of the Georgia performance standards science curriculum. This is an opportunity for Georgia Cyber Academy families to visit African Cosmos, and extend the knowledge further with a visit to Emory's planetarium. This special screening has been designed to explore the African night skies and how they influenced the creation of various objects from the ancient Egyptians to contemporary artists from South Africa. The planetarium shows will alternate with museum tours at 10:00 and 11:00 am. 

    This unique, two-hour program for Georgia Cyber Academy students and parents begins promptly at 10 a.m.

    Fee:  $3 per person, age 6 and older.  Not recommended for children under the age of 6.
