Students at the East Side Middle School were thrilled with the opportunity experience a real-time lesson about the elephants of Thailand.
"When we see the elephants on the screen they will immediately connect and it's not hard to do with elephants," said Emile Lubis, Science Teacher.
The students belong to an after school club, which is part of the not-for-profit called Think Elephants.
"To get an opportunity to actually work with elephants as close as we have been doing is a very rare opportunity a New York City kid; and not just any elephants. It's elephants across the world," said Ben Singer.
Josh Plotnik, an Associate Director of the Golden Triangle Elephant Foundation, who arranged the Skype connection from Thailand, based on his longtime friendship with the school's administration.
