SAS ES Atoms Kick off Fall with a Gourd-Tastic Field Trip

SAS ES Atom's Field Trip to Tim's Pumpkin Patch

What do you get if you divide the circumference of a pumpkin by its diameter? A pumpkin pi! 

On Monday, October 3rd, Syracuse Academy of Science first graders didn't make any pumpkin pie, but they did get to visit Tim's Pumpkin patch. The farm in Marietta is a fall staple for families here in Central New York. Students took a tractor wagon ride, picked pumpkins, and enjoyed delicious cider and donuts.

It was a gourd-tastic way to kick off October!
