CORTLANDT, N.Y. – The Hendrick Hudson School District was Science Central on March 12 when two of the district’s three elementary schools, Buchanan-Verplanck Elementary School and the Furnace Woods School, hosted science fairs.
Modern science fairs are sophisticated events that provide students with the opportunity to investigate a problem through experimentation using the scientific method and explain it to their classmates and families through a hands-on display.
Sarakay Eyring and Catherine Holzman, organizers of the Buchanan-Verplanck event, stated in a letter to parents, “Doing science is key to understanding science.”
“It was so great to see the kids engaged in hands-on science activities. The children did a fabulous job explaining the scientific process and sharing their findings, and answering questions. This is what learning is all about,” said Furnace Woods Principal Cynthia Kramer.
