Haven Academy Dinosaurs

Students at one Bronx school got a blast from the past Tuesday. The Jurassic World Live tour stopped by Mott Haven Academy to teach students how prehistoric times impact the modern world.

The tour featured Olive, a life-sized baby stegosaurus who let students have a hands-on learning experience. Principal Ashlyn Field says it’s part of a district initiative to add more science into the students’ curriculum. “We a few years ago decided that we don’t have enough science in our curriculum, so we overhauled K to 5 and added a lot of science into it and so students a learning about pushes and pulls and forces and plants and animals and survival,” says Field.
