*San Jose Tech Museum: On Tuesday, January 31st we will be going to the Tech Museum for our Human Centered Design Unit.  This trip will help solidify what students will be learning (Engineering, Inventions, Causes, Math, etc) in their classes.
Place: San Jose Tech Museum
Date: Tuesday, January 31st
Time: 7:30am ~ 5:30pm
Cost: $32 (both form & payment are due on November 10th) This is non-refundable.
Need: We need drivers for this trip. Because of distance & cost, drivers must be able to take a minimum of 4 students in their vehicle. Drivers must have Proof of Insurance (Declarations Page) showing $100,000/$300,000 liability coverage AND a copy of my DMV license on file at school.   A Megan’s Law check will be conducted on parents who drive and/or chaperone.
Details: Students & chaperones will need to bring a sack lunch.  The trip includes a lab, an Imax film, and time to explore the exhibits.  The whole experience is tied into our curriculum.
Attached is the permission form (we have paper copies available in class).  Please note, no late forms/payments will be accepted after November 10th.  This is a firm date, for we must pay the museum by their due date.
