WSC students embarked on two educational field trips this month to help them dig deeper into the curriculum.  As part of the sixth grade science curriculum, students traveled to the New York City Space Center to work with simple and complex machines and learn about the aeronautics of forces and motion.  Students had a blast as they experienced and tested airplane AND shuttle flight!
Students from Ms. Caruso's Art Exploration and Experimentation class joined Mr. Schiff's iMovie and Filmmaking class for a visit to the "Behind the Scenes" exhibit of the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria.  The exhibit immerses visitors in the creative and technical process of producing, promoting, and presenting films, television shows, and digital entertainment. It reveals the skills, material resources, and artistic decisions that go into making moving images. Behind the Screen also introduces visitors to the history of the moving image, from nineteenth-century optical toys to the present-day impact of digital tools on film editing and post-production.  Students are certain to find inspiration as they engage in their own artistic endeavors back in the classroom.
