Parents and Lower School boys spent the first hour of their day on May 23 in the cafeteria, where they hosted their parents, siblings and other family members for the annual Lower School Science Exhibition. The boys and their science teachers, Julia Kingsdale and Sam Keany, had set up an impressive array of science projects, which the students were eager to explain in exacting detail. This morning of scientific discovery and sharing of knowledge represents a culmination of experimentation and modification.
Assistant Head of School/Head of Lower School Laurie Gruhn said, "The second and third grade boys worked incredibly hard on developing their ideas. The thought, care and detail that went into each project is a testament to the students' understanding of the scientific method, as well as the dedication of the two teachers who oversaw each project. Watching an eight- or nine-year-old boy bring his questions to life in a hands-on experiential manner – with no guarantee of a successful conclusion – is both rewarding and challenging. I thank Mr. Keany and Ms. Kingsdale, and I congratulate the boys on their efforts."
