Field Trips – Resources within the community will be used to enrich the curriculum. IMSA-West Indianapolis will sponsor trips to venues such as Eli Lilly, the National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research, local colleges/universities, and hospitals to learn more about careers in science, math and technology as well as participate in problem-based learning activities.
In addition, field trips will be planned to a national and/or international destination at a specific point in the curriculum. Both parents and teachers will be encouraged to accompany students on these trips. Concept students and parents have participated in trips to Malaysia, Thailand, Europe, Philippines, Turkey, Africa, Russia, New York City, Washington, D. C., Florida, California, Columbus,Cincinnati, Chicago, West Virginia White River Rafting, Louisville, St. Louis, Science Center at Fort Wayne, Pittsburgh and Niagara Falls.
Trips are on a voluntary basis with parents covering the expenses. Students will fundraise throughout the year to reduce the cost of trips. Students also must meet certain criteria related to GPA, discipline, and attendance in order to participate in such trips. IMSA-West Indianapolis will also have incentives such as discounts on these trips for high GPAs and excellent behavior.
