Fifth-graders in Nicole McAdam and Kristy DiSilvio’s JFK class recently spent a day exploring the more than 400 hands-on exhibits at the New York Hall of Science at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens. The students experimented with mirror images, color, force and motion, among other biology, chemistry and physics topics.

One of the only remaining structures from the 1964 New York World’s Fair, the New York Hall of Science museum is New York City’s only interactive science and technology center and features more than 400 hands-on exhibits exploring.

“It was great to see the children so excited about learning,” said McAdam. “It was our first time at the Hall of Science, and we look forward to going again next year.”
