ROSELLE, NJ - WHO YOU GONNA CALL FOR ARTS AND SCIENCES? The New York City Ghostbusters, a fan and charity organization that supports causes related to literacy, arts/sciences, and cancer research, visited Roselle's Harrison Elementary School on April 30th for the school's Spring Open House and Science Fair. 

Third grade students displayed their work on the second floor called “Adaptation Nation” where they had been studying animals that have survived and those that are now extinct. 

Displays of animals like the whooping crane showing the size of its wing span; as well as different types of elephants, both African and Asian, and the adaptation between the two showing that, while both have wrinkles, the ears and trunk are different on each. The displays are part of the schools Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) Program.

“It’s a group collaboration and a lot of work, but every single child can do it,” said teacher Marybelle Espin. “At the end of the day it was worth all of their smiles.”

While Espin was upstairs showing the students work, another Espin, her son Ryan Espin, a New York City Ghostbuster, was downstairs working with the team showing the students and their families how slime is created and many other Ghostbuster secrets. 

Along with the Ghostbuster presentation, other students science projects were also display.
