Forty two students representing Bangor Elementary School District and various BCOE Expanded Learning Programs traveled to Monterrey, CA on Saturday, September 23 to attend Pure Championship First Tee Open at Pebble Beach Golf Course. Students who attended the field trip have been participating in First Tee DRIVE curriculum at their respective after school program. Students and chaperones enjoyed a day on the links, complimentary lunch, and 2 hours in the Chevron STEM Center where they participated in activities that linked Science, Technology and Math to sports. "I learned about what happens when your vision is impaired and you try to hit a golf ball," said Bryce McDowell, 4th grader, Bangor Elementary School, of the the STEM Center.
