Beginner and Intermediate ESL students of J.W. Dodd Middle School visited the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. There, students learned about the legacy of Long Islanders in the history of flight and were inspired by the ways in which engineering has impacted lives. Students explored the museums' air and spacecraft exhibits, and then listened to an amazing presentation led by Scarlin Hernandez, a NASA Space Engineer. After that, students watched the film "Dream Big: Engineering Our World," which told a heartfelt story of human ingenuity. At the end of the trip, students left the museum inspired with the belief that they can do anything if they work hard and dream big.
