Garden Hills Students Visit Parkland's Applied Tech Center
CHAMPAIGN-- Some Garden Hills Elementary Students went on a special field trip today.

A select group of excited 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders who are a part of the Homework Club usually receive tutoring after school from Parkland students.

But today, it wasn't about homework, it was about visiting the Applied Technology Center.

The Homework Club learned about the inner working of cars and what the center has to offer. The reason for the field trip was to show students where their tutors go to school.

The 5-year-old program hosts a field trip to Parkland once a semester. Students from Garden Hills are hand-picked by teacher to participate in the Homework Club.
