Technology Day Celebrated by 1,200 Seventh Graders from Catholic Elementary Schools

Approximately 1,200 seventh-grade students from 35 Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre will participate in the Fifth Annual Technology Day at Adventureland in Farmingdale. Technology day combines work and play by giving each attendee a workbook with learning activities connected to the 12 rides that will be operating.  These activities direct students to study the rides, observe engineering design principles such as structure, safety, accessibility, etc. and use problem-solving skills to complete the activities.

With paper, pencils, calculators and stopwatches in hand, students will have to complete a workbook filled with learning activities connected to the 12 rides that will be operating that day.  These activities will direct students to study the rides, observe engineering design principles such as structure, safety, accessibility, etc. and use problem-solving skills to complete the activities.

This event begins at 9:30 and ends at 1:30.
