SUNY-ESF Campus Visit

On Tuesday, Sep 26th 2017, Syracuse Academy of Science High School (SASCS-HS) students visited SUNY-ESF. The trip was coordinated by the outreach program and hosted by Dr. Richard Beal, Jacob O'Connell and Maura H. Stefl.

The campus visit started with a brief visit to the Chemistry laboratories at SUNY-ESF where students had an opportunity to see some of the best analytical instruments. After the arrival of other high schools, Dr. Beal gave an energetic presentation. SASCS-HS students joined their peers from other high schools and worked on a group activity, building system diagrams for 10 different global issues. This activity helped students visualizing today’s pressing matters and developing a deeper understanding of global problems. Following the activity, students had lunch and a guided tour visiting campus library, hydrology laboratory and paper engineering departments. At the Hydrology laboratory, students listened a presentation about water flumes and how they are used to study river systems. Later, while visiting the paper engineering department, they learnt about the paper production and how the by-product are being used to produce biodiesel.

The trip was very valuable and informative for students. They enjoyed learning about different career opportunities and what SUNY-ESF has to offer to their prospective students.

The colorful equipment echoes the school’s uniform colors and offers more space for free-time adventures than the previous playground, which is still available for students to use. Tall poles capped with palm fronds add a tropical feel to the site, which features plenty of wood chips for safe landings, daring rescues and darting about.

Elementary visits Beak & Skiff

On Wednesday September 20th, 2017 ,Third grade had a beautiful day for their first field trip of the year to Beak & Skiff. We were lucky to not only have gorgeous weather, but the honey crisp apples were ripe for the picking! The students enjoyed a wagon ride through the orchards and picking the giant apples. Some sampling may have happened. Afterwards, students played in the play area, had a picnic lunch, and finished their visit with fresh apple cider and donuts. Fun was had by all!  

The kindergarten classes went on their first field trip this year to Beak and Skiff Apple Orchard. They had lots of fun learning about how apples grow and the importance of bees in the process. Even though the sun was not shining, their smiles sure did brighten up the day. As many of them said, "Apple picking was fun!"
