From November 22nd to November 24th the Bethpage Chapter of the National Honor Society visited Philadelphia to see the historic sites, explore the culture of modern Philadelphia and learn in some world-class museums. On Friday the group visited the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall and the Adventure Aquarium. The Hippopotamus feeding was a big hit! Later the 48 students dined aboard the Moshulu, the largest masted sailing ship in the U.S. The next day began with a trip to the National Constitution Center where the students learned about the creation of the United States and modern politics. Everyone particularly enjoyed the lifesize statues of the Framers of the Constitution. Being in Philadelphia meant cheesesteaks for lunch followed by a visit to the Franklin Institute, one of the nation's premier scientific museums. Sunday was a chilly day at the zoo, highlighted by seeing a newborn gibbon.
