Monday, November 21st, 2022: Utica Academy of Science Kindergarten classes had an amazing field trip to the Accelerate Sports complex. Atoms were taught about different types of sports and even saw demonstrations for each of them! Most of our atoms haven’t started playing a sport yet, so they were eager to learn something new!
Friday, November 18th, 2022: Utica Academy of Science third graders had a blast visiting the Most museum in Syracuse. From the dino zone, to the earth science discovery cave and the science playhouse there was something new to experience in every room! Atoms were able to interact with exhibits that they have been learning about in class.
The MOST is always an exciting place to take our atoms!

Thursday, November 17th, 2022: Our Elementary school K-2 students of October had a special breakfast with our Superintendent, Dr. Tolga Hayali. These atoms were chosen as students of the month for showing honesty. They had a chance to ask Dr. Hayali questions and talk about anything they may have on their mind. Dr. Hayali was very excited to meet our students and asked about their future goals and ideas to improve our school. It was such a sweet moment.
We are so proud of our little scholars!
Wednesday, November 9th, 2022: Lions and tigers and bears… oh my! Utica Academy of Science 1st graders visited the Utica Zoo. They were excited to see the animals and the animals were excited to see them! The monkeys were showing off their tricks, the lions were roaring and the wolves were howling. We had a great experience walking through the nature trail where students followed the paw print clues to find their way out!
Saturday, November 5th, 2022: Utica Academy of Science 7th and 8th graders participated in the CNY Bridge Challenge at the MOST in Syracuse. Ten teams from Utica Academy of Science and about 40 teams total competed. For the competition, students are tasked with designing and constructing a truss bridge built entirely of glue and balsa wood. Bridges are tested for their efficiency rating, a measure of how many times its weight the bridge can support before structural failure.
Congratulations, UAS Atoms! We are proud of your hard work and diligence!

Saturday, October 28th, 2022: Utica Academy of Science Atoms participated in Harvest on the Hill. About 15 scholars helped set up candy booths and tents. The boys' basketball team and Ms. Williams participated in the parade down James Street in remembrance of community leader Patrick Johnson. He lost his battle with cancer a few weeks ago.
Children from the community went from booth to booth getting candy and all types of goodies and treats. We proudly showed the SANY spirit of many atoms, one family, by wearing orange shirts. Ms. Williams took it to the next level sporting her new look… orange hair! Thank you, Ms. Senora Pierce and Ms. Kia Williams, for inviting Utica Academy of Science to such a special community event.
