2015 - 2016 Field Trip Partnership:

Did you know that 108 of the 142 Kentucky Derby winners were born in Kentucky?

Students galloped over to Gheens Science Hall & Rauch Planetarium and the Kentucky Derby Museum for a joint field trip adventure, as we explored the origins of Kentucky’s soil, beginning with the formation of the Universe.

We investigated the role of plate tectonics and natural processes in forming and shaping the natural wonders, in particular the soil of Kentucky and its role in producing the fastest racehorses in the world.
