Glen Cove High School students and teachers participated in the Vanderbilt Museum’s Discovering the Universe: Mobile Classroom on Dec. 10.  

Throughout the day, nearly 100 students in their respective science classes (ENL Environmental Science, Environmental Science, Self-Contained Living Environment and Honors Physics) visited the Mobile Classroom, which is housed in a high-tech, 37-foot recreational vehicle.

Under the supervision of two engaging museum educators, students experienced five educational and hands-on modules, including Light, Telescopes, Digital Imaging, the 3-D Universe and Gravity.
