NASHVILLE, Tenn. - School may be out for the summer, but the learning continues at Nashville's Adventure Science Center for schoolchildren.
Children and their parents said classes at the center make learning about science fun.
The center offers a variety of lessons.
During a recent visit, Gabriella Lamothe was teaching students about combustion science or the science of burning.
"They're learning all about science and what they learned in school, they're seeing it put into action here," Lamothe said.
In another class, Frank Ansah addressed students from Clarksville's Barksdale Elementary School about the weather and how it's affected by air, water and heat.
"A lot of the school kids who come visit us on a field trip will then later return to visit us on their own, with their parents during the summer or just on a weekend during the school year," said an Adventure Science Center employee.
"It's wonderful, just the variety, the assortment of the different types of demonstrations that they got to watch," said Sabrina McAllister, a teacher. "I think there was something for everyone no matter what your favorite part of weather was."
The Adventure Science Center's new Sudekum Planetarium opens June 28.
