ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)-  Science educators at the Adler Planetarium are rolled out science and math lessons during a 300-mile bike ride to St. Louis.

The ride started on September 18th. Teachers offered science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) lessons at several stops along the way.

Some students on the route got to touch space rock. Other students used a leaf blower to unravel a mini solar system. Still others learned how black holes "spaghettify" planets and stars.

The classes continue at the cyclists` final destination, the James S. McDonnell Planetarium at the Saint Louis Science Center.
