Students at Aquebogue Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District are gaining skills in teamwork – and architecture – as part of an Imagination Station gym program.

Through the hands-on initiative, students use their creativity to build structures using large Styrofoam building blocks. In teams, they collaborate to take on challenges, which include assembling the largest, tallest and strongest fabrications. 

“The students really seem to enjoy the program,” said Assistant Principal Vanessa Williams, who added that the program has grown over the past two years to incorporate all grade levels at the school.
