The entire fourth-grade class at F.E. Bellows Elementary School went on a field trip to the New York Hall of Science on April 4. The trip provided students with an opportunity to explore exhibits related to many of the concepts they learn about in their classrooms.

They toured the Mars exhibit, Mathematica exhibit, the Athletics exhibit and the Science Fiction, Science Future exhibit among others.

“One of their favorite experiences was the 3-D informational video on chipmunks,” Principal Michael Scarantino said. “They loved all of the interesting facts they didn't know about these little critters.”

Scarantino said the learning opportunity was made possible thanks to the teachers who arranged the visit and the parents who continue to support the school’s field trips.
