Throughout the month of March, students at Idle Hour Elementary School banded together to collect more than 1,200 books, ranging from baby board books to elementary picture books to chapter books for teens and adults. The school then passed the books on to the "The Book Fairies,” a local nonprofit organization that will now distribute them to people in need across Long Island and New York City.

As part of an interactive workshop sponsored by the Long Island Explorium, third graders in Kathleen Bankoff’s class at Idle Hour Elementary School recently used a variety of materials to construct their own rollercoasters. Through this activity, the students explored Isaac Newton's laws of motion and how they could utilize them to ensure that a marble had enough energy to get around the rollercoaster tracks without flying off.
