EAF students Ismael Martinez, Alexander Martinez, Joshua Martinez and Julio Alvarado earned a trip to the California Science Center this month based on their attendance, participation, grades, effort and improvements. The students enjoyed a fun and educational day at the Cleopatra exhibit where they saw many different artifacts from her reign in Egypt. The students were also excited they were able to see the Endeavor spacecraft up close and personal.
EAF students, Juan Jaimes and Alvaro Ramirez received a wonderful outing to Kooza (a Cirque Du Soleil performance) from their teacher, Molly Mesmer and EAF founder, Joe Killinger. The students were selected based on their academic achievements and admirable dedication to their studies at the resource room. The students had the time of their lives as the group enjoyed an evening filled with spectacular, breathtaking performances.
Our students in the Los Angeles program enjoyed a few days away from the hustle and bustle of the big city in exchange for some fishing, hiking, and camping. They even came across an old gold mine!! The students were also able to visit Manzanar; A National Historic Site. Manzanar War Relocation Center was one of ten camps where Japanese American citizens and resident Japanese aliens were interned during World War II. Sounds like a pretty neat history lesson. We would like to give many thanks to Mark Fuchs of Juniper Insurance for setting this all up!

Texas - Our top four students for the last two weeks
Education Advantage Foundation took a group of their students to the Dallas Museum of Nature & Science to view the Planet Shark: Predator or Prey exhibit. The exhibit led the students through the murky myths and fascinating facts which have surrounded sharks for centuries. They saw explanations and examinations of almost every aspect of the shark - from evolution and biology to popular culture. One of nature’s oldest and most feared creatures, the shark is also one of the most misunderstood. The students enjoyed a fun-filled day at the museum and left with a whole new level of respect for the ocean's oldest and deadliest predator along with the understanding of why they are necessary for life on Planet Earth.
