Third-graders from Wading River School recently took part in a stimulating field trip to Brookhaven National Laboratory Science Learning Center.

The interactive exhibits and hands-on opportunities helped the students connect to cutting-edge science, technology, engineering and mathematics topics, an extension of their classroom learning.

Focused on the physical sciences, the inquiry-based learning environment included exhibits on sound waves, engineering concepts and an air cannon where students learned that air has mass and takes up space, among other opportunities for them to investigate and explore.
