This year the entire fifth grade at Heathcote School went to the New York Hall of Science for a field trip. The museum is a hands-on museum meaning you get to try and experiment with a lot of exhibits in the museum. It was about a forty-five minute bus drive one way. There we explored several interesting and educational exhibits. There was cool stuff like a rock simulator, a wheelchair race, an arm wrestling match using two different computers, a radar baseball pitching gun, and many more intriguing interactive displays. We then went to another section where we had to build something to help solve a problem. I worked with some of my friends to build a rocket ship out of wooden blocks, paper clips, and rubber bands. Our design worked and looked a lot like a rocket. Later we learned how to make a bubble in different ways. We even saw hypnotizing things, cool mirrors, and even a hologram! We did cool stuff like this the whole day but unfortunately, we had to leave. I loved the museum and was very sad to leave the wonderful museum. I had an exceptional experience there and have a desire to go there again soon with my family.
