Science Day is here!

We are so excited for Science Day 2014, which is held on Thursday, March 20.

At Pine Cobble, science Day is an all-school celebration of the scientific method. Students in grades 4-9 present research in front of the school; by sixth grade, all students will have done some kind of independent original scientific research. At the end of the day, all grades come together in some sort of science challenge (in the past, students have had to build weight-bearing structures from dry spaghetti and a limited amount of scotch tape, for example).

Here’s the schedule of presentations for the day. All are welcome!
