Wheeler Visits Long Island Children’s Museum

January 3, 2017

The Wheeler Avenue Elementary School’s fifth grade class recently visited the Long Island Children’s museum and were part of the STEM to STEAM project. The classes engaged with various STEAM activities – Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The students explored an animal art exhibit, observed the uses of simple machines, learned various ways of communication, and were able to build structures using their own creativity and understanding of engineering and architecture.

The field trip served as an educational tool to teach students the vital skills needed in the 21st century.
