Friday, June 10th, 2022—Someone queue the pomp and circumstance, as it's almost time for graduation! As the Utica Academy of Science junior-senior high school graduating seniors from the Class of 2022 prepare for their upcoming graduation, they first take a walk to where it all began, elementary school.
These future graduates donned their caps and gowns and walked through Utica Academy of Science elementary school halls holding hands with the youngest Atoms as classmates cheered them on. This time-honored tradition allows our Elementary Atoms to see what they can strive for and look forward to while reminding our Seniors to see where it all started.
To celebrate, elementary school teachers and students decorated and made signs to congratulate the seniors on their hard work and accomplishments.
We wish our Class of 2022 the best of luck with their upcoming graduation and future endeavors!
Friday, June 10th, 2022—We may have some future spelunkers here, as Utica Academy of Science elementary school's 4th-grade Atoms said yes to keeping adventure and exploration alive when visiting the Howe Caverns.
Their adventure began when they stepped into an elevator that took them 156 feet below the Earth's surface to a prehistoric destination 6 million years in the making. In this prehistoric cavern, stalagmites and stalactites filled the area. While many might think that being that far below the Earth's surface would be chilly, at Howe Caverns, it was constant 52 degrees Fahrenheit and 75% humidity year-round.
This geological adventure reminded the students just how deep below the Earth's surface they were when hearing every sound echo off the walls and ceilings. Atoms learned about the magnificent limestone and flowstone and conservation efforts to preserve this prehistoric location for future generations to enjoy.
The Howe Caverns is New York State's 2nd most visited Natural Attraction and a favorite field trip location amongst the Atoms. Please click here to view additional pictures from Utica Academy of Science elementary school's 4th-grade field trip to Howe Caverns.
