Fifth-grade teacher Aaron Pairolero says the opportunity to learn outside the classroom impacted many of the students.
The fifth-grade students also visited the Veterans Museum and Physics Museum. in Madison. They concluded with a tour of the University of Wisconsin campus. Pairolero added that the students took many different nuggets away from the field trip with one commenting after the return to Sturgeon Bay that she wants to be the next governor of Wisconsin.
