BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Some lucky East Baton Rouge Parish students got to step out of the classroom Monday for a fun, hands-on learning experience.

ExxonMobil and the Louisiana Art and Science Museum teamed up for the 22nd annual ExxonMobil Science Days. Students got to learn about chemistry and astronomy.

They also got a better understanding of engineering while designing a roller coaster for marbles, but most of all it got them excited about science.

"Really inquisitive, enthusiastic and they like to ask as lot of questions and they're just really, really great kids, loving science, learning a lot about science here and just really enjoying themselves," said Wanda McFarland, a teacher at Progress Elementary.

About 600 students from several schools participated in Monday's event.
