Westview Girl Power PEARLS visit State House

On Saturday, May 4, 2019 Westview Girl Power PEARLS took a field study trip to the SC State House and State Museum in Columbia, South Carolina.  The group was given a guided tour of the State House. This was the first time the group had the pleasure of visiting the facility.  They were awarded the opportunity to receive first-hand information regarding the history, the beautiful exterior and interior architectural features of the State House and the important roles of the executive and legislative branches of South Carolina Government.  

The students also had the opportunity to see where Senator Floyd Nicholson sits in the Senate Chamber as he carries out his duties as State Senator of District 10. Rep. John McCravy made the group’s visit very special by providing each girl a certificate to commemorate their visit to the State House.

The visit to the State Museum provided the girls the chance to experience a 4D movie, “ICE AGE”. The Girl Power group also had the opportunity to experience the sights and sounds in a planetarium as they learned all about how “black holes” are formed; as well as exploring the state-of-the art attractions and exhibits on the four levels of the museum.  Thank you to “The Self Family Foundation” for making this awesome learning experience possible for the Girl Power PEARLS of Westview Middle School.
