WHAT: Approximately 1,400 seventh-grade students from 34 Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Rockville Centre will participate in the Fifth Annual Technology Day at Adventureland in Farmingdale.

When students arrive at the park, each will have in hand 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.

Unlike most family trips to Adventureland, students will be looking at the rides from an educational perspective as opposed to solely a recreational one. Do not be surprised to see students spread out among benches and tables with paper, pencils, calculators and stopwatches in hand. 

WHEN: Tuesday, October 18
Wednesday, October 19   

TIME: 9:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. 

WHERE: Adventureland
Farmingdale
2245 Route 110
Farmingdale NY 11735
