On Saturday, March 21, 2015 Explore 2000 headed to Chinatown, NYC to participate in the 15th Annual Indoor Paddling Regatta. Students and facilitators both competed in the individual 250 meter races and the group relay 250 meter races against each other and other middle schools. The energy and support in the room was indescribable and all participants were overjoyed to have shared the experience together. This field experience was one component of a fitness and team building activity that is sponsored by the HCST Foundation. Because of their commitment and enthusiasm, the students have been invited to paddle in a real dragon boat in the spring of 2015.
