KICK-OFF FOR THE 2019 FAIR
Mad Science of Boston: We will catalyze this year’s science fair “season” with an exciting show at the January 3rd All School Meeting by Chemistry Christa from Mad Science of Boston. Ms. Ritter is a former science teacher who loves to share her excitement of chemical reactions.
Project Help On Tuesday, February 5 - 3:15-4:15 PM
If your Fiske scientist has too many inhibitors in their reaction while thinking about a project idea, encourage them to come to a project help session in the school library. Lexington High School students and scientists from the Fiske community will help Fiske students brainstorm and think through project ideas. Ms. Conant, our Fiske Librarian, will be available and have books on various science topics available for reference.
