4th Graders have an Electrifying Experience at the NY Energy Zone

Utica Academy of Science 4th Graders Take a Trip to the Energy Zone

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022: Our fourth graders went on a field trip to the NY Energy Zone inside the Utica Zoo before they left for Thanksgiving break.

The NY Energy Zone gave our scholars an electrifying experience full of interactive exhibits, activities, movies, and videos. Atoms were introduced to the dynamic world of electricity, past, present, and future, and New York State’s part in it. Scholars also learned about New York State’s exciting electric history, great electric companies, and the important work at NYPA’s Frederick R. Clark Energy Control Center nearby in Marcy.
