Grades 3 and 4 Science Expo

Third and fourth-graders from Cornwall-on-Hudson, Lee Road and Willow Avenue participated in a Science Expo at the middle school on Jan. 23. It was an evening event, with parents helping the kids set up their exhibits — which had been ready since before Jan. 4 when the original expo was snowed out.

Science coordinator Caryn Mante organized the event with help from several high school students who (among other things) interviewed the exhibitors. Here are a few sites we visited.
