UTICA, N.Y. -- Some of the youngest learners got the chance to find out more about animal classification and conservation at the Utica Zoo.
The monthly program offers STEM-based learning topics to students age three to five. It gets the kids' minds working and thinking about wildlife.
The classes are during the day, when other kids might be in school.
And the idea is to get kids out of books and out of their houses to learn first-hand!
“We hold our zoo adventures here every other Thursday, so it's for anyone who wants to preregister that has kids age three to five,” said Utica Zoo educator Ncolette Hajdasz,
Coming up over the break when school-children are out of school there are two zoo camps.
