On January 6th, we visited the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City.
This is what our students had to say:  "My experience at the Liberty Science Center was absolutely amazing!...When I walked in, I saw a giant silver spikey ball decreasing and increasing from small to large hanging from the ceiling.  I took an elevator to the third floor and I went into a Plant and Animal Room and I saw some monkeys, a lungfish, huff fishes, cockroaches and reptiles." ... "In my opinion, I thought this was a great field trip for our group.  It was fun and educational.  Two of the most fun activities I was involved in was part of a skyscraper exhibit.  I loved the hurricane simulator, however, my favorite activity was walking on the high beam." ... "The LSC trip was a very interesting trip, we went to many exhibits, including; a giant net, a hurricane simulator and a really bad vending machine." ... "I really enjoyed it.  I saw many fun and cool things.  But the activity that I enjoyed the most was the Hurricane Simulator.  The winds are super strong and the rain is crazy.  I think is was an amazing experience, I would like to go back again one day." ... "The LSC was a nice experience with some classmates.  The Hurricane Simulator was one of my favorite activites on the trip." ... "There were even animals like it was a mini zoo but the best part about it was almost all the animals were REPTILES." ..."I saw a maze when we went in.  I looked down, we were at least 20 feet off the ground." ..."I also liked the tornado room, even if I didn't go in.  I also liked the Rubik's Cubes, especially the music one." ..."You could see all different Rubik's Cubes that have been made.  Finally before lunch we went on a new attraction, it is a climbing maze of some sort, plus it's about 10 feet in the air." ..."That's what makes a field trip fun being with people that make you laugh and enjoy what you are doing.  That is why the field trip was fun for me and I won't trade that time or my two best friends for the whole wide world."
