Juniors Navigate the Stars to Freedom

On Monday, February 4, 2019,  in honor of Black History Month, #UASCS Juniors went on a field trip to the Henry Hudson Planetarium and the Stephen and Harriet Myers Residence in Albany, NY.  In the 1850’s, the Myers were point people in the Underground Railroad. At both sites, our scholars were able to learn more about the Underground Railroad, astronomy, and the way Freedom Seekers used math and science to help escape the institution of slavery.  The insightful experience was aligned with the students’ current U.S. History curriculum and brought learning to life.
