As an extension of their science curriculum, third-grade students at Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School had their classroom lessons come to life during a recent assembly program provided by the Long Island Science Center in Rocky Point.

During the event, titled “All About Air,” the students investigated the properties of air using balls, balloons, bags and even a hair dryer. Through visual demonstrations, they learned that air takes up space, has weight and exerts pressure. They also participated in a discussion of Bernoulli’s principle and Pascal’s law.
