Fifth graders spent the night at the Outdoor Lab on Thursday, May 5th. Despite the rainy weather, a lot of learning took place as students pitched their own tents, studied aquatic animals in the stream, and examined many geological specimens found at the Lab.

According to VMDO architect Philip Donovan, that amount of energy could power a small home for a year!
