  • Looking for a different type of educational field trip for your students? Look no further! Here's what one educator had to say about bringing her math class to The Capital Wheel: "After analyzing many Ferris wheels, discovering sinusoidal equations, and applying trigonometric ratios, I decided to plan a field trip for our Algebra 2 students. Thanks to the Capital Wheel, these students had the opportunity to make first hand connections, gather real data, and bring our classroom to life. We have no doubts that our students will NEVER be able to look a Ferris wheel without thinking about math!" -MCPS Educator Message us for more details/special rates!
