We hope you all had a great thanksgiving. Based on the email I received this morning from GES fifth-grade student, Emma Bellatty, it sounds like she did!
“Hi Mr Reeves, We visited the Star Wars exhibit during Thanksgiving break. It was awesome! My favorite parts were when it explained the set up of Master Yoda’s plain, boring, and torn fabric. Also another of my favorites was when they had every kind of light saber ever made in a certain spot on a big platform. You could even light them by pushing the button in front of each light saber.
